Is there away to find out some of the Military Airports codes. With the airlines bringing back people from the Middle East I just wondering where they are bringing them back too.

Well, an easy way to know if it's a Navy or Marine base, take a look at the first two letters...KN...K as in the US, N as in a Navy/Marine base...so KNZC would have been NAS Cecil Field, KNRB NS Mayport, KNIP NAS Jacksonville, you get the idea....

Most military charters on commercial airlines originating in middle east will use a "Reach" callsign from origin to final destination, I have been told these don't show up on most flight trackers.

Which bases do you want? We log all of our flights with normal ICAOs. Of course we are usually KTIK to KTIK  Big grin but here are several off the top of my cranium.... On my charter flights on ATA and such, my passes have all used these same ICAOs:

Tinker- KTIK
Tyndall- KPAM
Nellis- KLVS
Langley- KLFI
Eglin- KVPS

Guard or reserve bases use the same code as the airport, like
Ellington Field ANGB- KEFD
Will Rogers- KOKC
etc etc

Ciao, and Hook 'em Horns,

www.airnav.com should list them all, and I think military folks are coming back on civilian carriers mixed in with civilians

www.airnav.com is a wonderful site. I just need to add that to find an ID of a military base, you need to use the name search as most will not appear using a state search.

The day you stop learning is the day you should die.
