    Pretty cool! If you use the Wikipedia page (List of Iranian Air Force Bases - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) you can see all kinds of cool stuff. I'm particularly interested in the Iranian air force because of the mix of soviet/American aircraft. I've also found F-4s, Su-20s, C-130s, and P-3s right next to Il-76s.

    Quite a few countries' airbases are listed by coordinates. It's fun!

    Just look up air forces on wikipedia, they list coordinates of many air bases. fire up google earth and type in the coordinates, then look around.

    All in all, the Iranian Air Force was said to have launched possibly 70 to 90 AIM-54A missiles, and 60-70 of those scored. Of those, almost 90% of the AIM-54A missiles fired were used against Iraqi fighters and fighter-bombers. Only about a dozen victories by AIM-54s were claimed to be against fast, high-flying targets such as the MiG-25 or Tu-22 'Blinder'. The successes in aerial combat, if true, would make the Iranian Air Force the most successful user of the F-14 Tomcat during its operational history.
