F-15 Escapes as Wildfire Dangerously Approaches US Air Force BaseS

At first I thought this F-15SG was escaping from an attack against a US Air Force base in some war zone. Fortunately, the only attack was a 3,000-acre fire that affected the Mountain Home AFB, in Idaho.

Flying operations were suspended and personnel and warstuff had to be evacuated as the fire approached the base dangerously. While the base is in the US, the F-15SG belongs to the Republic of Singapore Air Force.

In any case, it's a very pretty picture.
