EGLIN AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. – A view of the test range at Eglin Air Force Base from a 507th Air Refueling Wing KC-135R Stratotanker from Tinker Air Force Base, Okla., Nov. 29, 2017. The crew flew over the range more than 60 times to allow a laser to fire at the recently installed Large Aircraft Infrared Countermeasure system. The laser was designed to simulate a missle that has targeted the aircraft. (Source: Eglin Air Force Base, 12/26/17)
