Andersen AFB is located on the island of Guam, about two thirds of the way between Hawaii and Taiwan. Given its location, Andersen is one of America's most strategic outposts, and with it sprawling size it acts like gigantic aircraft carrier and sea base from which the USA can project immense power.
Seeing as its location sits in the center of the increasingly heavily armed and geopolitically volatile Pacific Theater, large multi-national exercises, both in the air, on the ground and on and below the sea occur around the island. Also it is a primary stopping place for fighters, bombers, and transports crossing the vast Pacific. With all this in mind let's take a look at 30 stunning photographs taken in and around this mighty American super-base.
