I just watched Iron Eagle and was surprised when they just flew a couple F-16’s to a fictional country based on Lybia. I thought they were in the US up to that point. The father who worked on the air force base would make patrols off the coast of that country, so it makes sense that the base was set up for that purpose.
Any idea where they were? (I don’t mean where is not-Lybia, I mean where is the air base where the kids lived and the planes left from?)
The “ferry range” of the plane is about 2600 miles. There are mountains near the base.
