Welcome back to our channel for a feature on how the US Military copes with Icy and Snowy airports and runways in order to keep its aircraft flying. Many years ago, during a past century, I spent many a cold day and night as a firefighter driving around the alert pad in my ramp truck (basically a truck mounted dry chemical and halon fire extinguisher). During ORIs and other alert exercises, I would drive to each aircraft to let the sky cop posted on each aircraft to have a few minutes to warm up. It wasn’t much, but I did make a few friends along the way. The nickname Viper is not the legal name of the F-16. The Falcon is. I worked them for 9 years and never heard the Viper name until just a few years ago. It is a great thing that American fighters are now actively training in Sweden. The country is not yet a member of NATO, but will be soon, and with that the entire Nordic region (Norway, Sweden, Finland, Iceland and Denmark including Greenland and the Faroe Islands) is part of NATO. An area of just over 6 million km2 or approx. 60% of the entire US area including Alaska.
