Did you land any callsigns? I am interested in where the fighters came from, which base? If any one knows.

First set of fighters were CAESAR 55/56 and were F-15s from NAS New Orleans. The second set that relieved the CAESAR flight were PEAK (can't remember the numbers). These were F-16s from Buckley ANGB in Colorado. Tankers were NATION 01-04 and BIGFOOT was also active.
