Summary

Two reinforced concrete aircraft hangars at the Ahmed Al Jaber Airfield show the results of a coalition bombing strike during Operation Desert Storm. The hangars had been suspected of housing Iraqi aircraft. The photograph was taken from a Fighter Squadron 84 (VF-84) F-14A Tomcat aircraft using the Tactical Air Reconnaissance Pod System (TARPS).

Even now after 20 years the bunker hits can be counted. Googlemaps shows 13 objects with a demolished roof. One bunker is missing, probably disassambled.
