    We stopped at Lajes Field quite a few times in my day as well. It was usually a gas and go, so I didn;t get to see much of it.

    The Azores are mid way point on crossing the Atlantic on the Southern route if your transiting the Atlantic with an aircraft with short legs you'll stop there or Iceland . You'd see alot of aircraft of all kinds ferrying through. Out of curiosity does any one know if Lajes is located by a city

    The Azores is also an alternate landing spot for the Space Shuttle in time sof emergancy.

    We had some of our Blackhawks flown out there on a C-5 to do some training out there. Was really nice.
