1. The 1st Helicopter Squadron flying Hueys out of Andrews Air Force Base, Washington DC


These men and women fly high ranking military officials all over the national mall and Washington DC

2. The 13th Bomb Squadron flying the B-2 Stealth Bomber out of Whiteman Air Force Base, Missouri

The B-2 is America's most expensive plane costing $2.2B. Knob Noster, Missouri is a small town that houses some of the world's most awe inspiring firepower.

4. F-16s flying out of Spangdahlem Air Base, Germany


Near a small town called Bitburg, Germany, home of the famous beer "Bitburger", there is an amazing Air Force Base called Spangdahlem.

5. Airdropping over Afghanistan...The military's UPS


Airdrop Direct-Delivery Service to Afghanistan! A USAF Loadmaster stands and watches needed supplies drift down to Army troops on the ground.

7. The Gigantic C-5 Galaxies fly out of Dover Air Force Base, Delaware


The Dover racetrack known as the "Monster Mile" has a giant statue of a rock monster throwing a race car...This poster has the giant rock monster throwing one of the world's biggest aircraft like a paper plane. Amazing print!

8. C-17s fly at Charleston Air Force Base, South Carolina


The C-17 is a large military aircraft that can land on dirt runways...with a tank in the back! Many of these planes are stationed near Charleston, South Carolina. You can see the Charleston Bridge and the famous lighthouse in the background. There's also the classic Palmetto Tree and crescent moon that screams South Carolina.

10. The MQ-1 Predator drone training at Creech Air Force Base, Nevada


Casinos call their cameras the "eye in the sky" this poster is kind of funny because that drone has cameras mounted on it

13. Bonus! All Air Force pilots have to start somewhere...DA-20 Initial Flight School, Colorado


Diamond DA-20 Trainer flying over the Rockies, the title is kind of ironic "Rocky Landings Flight School", even Air Force pilots have rocky landings when they start!
