From 36.000ft out of a Czech AF Tupolev Tu-154M above "Samarra East Military Airbase", located approximately 96 km north of Baghdad. The airbase is build by Yugoslavian contractors prior to 1985 and served by a single 9,800 foot long runway. It occupies a 18 square km site and is protected by a 18 km security perimeter. As of 1991 there were 12 hardened aircraft shelters, now it seems one less.

This was my home from July to August 2003 with 3-29th Field Artillery. I used to run on that airfield and pulled a clock out of a wrecked AN-12. That clock sits on my mantle as a proud souvenir.
