Bomber Crash Site = Air Force Hub for Mid East

"The B-1 that crashed today was just one of roughly 10 currently deployed to Al Udeid in Qatar to provide air cover for coalition troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Al Udeid is the major forward base for big airplanes supporting the U.S. war operation. In this Google Maps snapshot you can see B-1s, RC-135 spy planes, E-8 radar planes and tankers. C-130s, C-17s and other "iron" are visible elsewhere on the sprawling base. Check it out."
