Believe it or not, in all my travels, I had only been to 47 states. With Vermont and New Hampshire recently under my belt, the only state left was Maine. Our first stop was Bangor, and there are several attractions right in town.
The planes stopped here to refuel on their way to Red Flag 15-4 at Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada. Red Flag is a get-together where pilots from the US and NATO and other allied countries practice in realistic aerial war games! Who knew!
