Not to derail the thread too much, but I was AMAZED at how many bases have closed in Europe; this list from Germany *alone* lists 215 former Army installations. I saw pictures not too long ago of the passenger terminal and control tower at Rhein Main being torn down. I don't think about w*rk too much these days, but those pictures did make me a bit teary eyed.

Edit...picture added.
