Creech Air Force Base
Officially named and activated in 2005, the Creech Air Force Base is history in the making. Creech Air Force base is one of the centres of operations for drone warfare, and specifically the main command of the Predator series. This base is better known, however, as a training ground for the legendary Thunderbirds, the US Air Force's aerial demonstration squadron.
Backstory and Context
The base serves more permanent needs at this time, however. As its primary goal, it serves as the main host for Predator drone operations in the USAF, as well as a supporting base for the Reaper craft, making it an indispensable tool in the arsenal of current military technology.
However, to touch on its main claim to fame would be to do Creech a major injustice. As it has always been suited to training purposes, Creech serves as a permanent demonstration training base to the premier aerobatics squadron, the USAF Thunderbirds. Known throughout the world for their incredible skill as pilots, the Thunderbirds serve a purpose quite unlike the UCAV operations of the base, but arguably, just as important, as their inspiring feats are a powerful tool to keep spirits high.
