Searching around the web, and putting two + two together, it looks like the deployment of the Alaskan Stryker Bde to NTC for pre-deployment training before they head off to Iraq.

They actually make it in there more often than you think. Anytime ANC weather is down, FAI is the preferred alternate. Many times on my way into work when I lived up there I'd see two or three NW 747's on the ramp waiting for the weather to improve.

Surprised to see thjey use FAI for this. Normally such tropp movements will depart out of Eielson AFB or even Ft Wainwright.
