I would like to know, besides Stewart, PHX and FRA, of other commercial airports that are shared by US and non-US military airbases? Stewart is shared with the NY State Air National Guard (who operates a number of C-5A's and other freighter military aircraft), PHX from what I recall is shared with the Arizona Air National Guard and FRA is shared as a US Military airbase.

ABQ is shared between the airport and a full Air Force Base (Kirtland AFB). In fact, I was on an ATL-LAS flight last month that had to divert to ABQ due to a F/A becoming quite ill and the Kirtland AFB EMTs were the ones that responded to our aircraft. I believe they handle all emergency services at the airport, both commercial and military.
Yeah, VERY lite. How is BLV doing these days? I've been hearing things off and on about gaining and losing service, which seems to be a cycle for BLV. Does G4 have scheduled service out of BLV? I see them on flightaware a lot, and I just saw that NW had a charter to AMS out of BLV. It seems like a nice airport and I hope things get better there.

CT ANG at Hartford Bradley-BDL (A-10's until recently, currently has ???)
Hanscom AFB/Bedford Airport, Mass-BED More of a GA/corporate airport, but still technically an Air Force Base, although I don't think any aircraft are based there?
Norwegian Royal Air Force at Oslo Gardermoen-OSL with C-130's/P-3's
NATO Airbase at Keflavik Airport, Iceland-KEF ( U.S. Navy P-3's were stationed here until they were withdrawn a couple years ago. Still a NATO base though)
Baghdad International, Iraq-SDA - with USAF and coalition forces.
I was in Germany in 1991-1993, Darmstadt, with the US Army. There have been huge reduction of forces by the US with
many base closings and consolidation to other bases. I believe operations at FRA were to move to Ramstein, which was alread a very large airbase back then.
SDF has ANG as well, but I don't know the size or purpose of the unit.
