After reading another article on in-flight refueling, I took a look through some* of the old photos dad took while he was a boom operator, and often in Greenland in the early 60s. I decided to search the internet for current photos of the facility, and found a match.

*some - since the rest of them are still at mom's house, not yet scanned

This is a photo he took of the base chapel in the early 60s. Probably to mail home to his mother with a BS line of, "Look Mom, You'll be happy to know that there's even a church here!"

This is one I found from 2009 - some 47 years later.

Now called Kangerlussuaq Airport, it doesn't look like it's changed much in the last 45 years.

And here's the rest of the ones I had.
