I Want To Play With This Tiny Air Force Base All Day Long

Look at this neat model of air base! Those perfectly executed aircraft models: an AWACS, B-52, KC-135, E-2, F-15, F-16, F-18 and even more. That regiment of lead soldiers! I wanna play with them for hours and hours. Wait, what, this is real?

Sadly for me, the problem is that this is not a toy air force base at all, but a group photo of the participants of a joint training exercise:

Exercise Cope North 15 participants and aircraft from the U.S. Air Force, U.S. Navy, Japan Air Self-Defence Force, Royal Australian Air Force, Republic of Korea Air Force, Royal New Zealand Air Force and Philippine Air Force take a group photo Feb. 13, 2015, at Andersen Air Force Base, Guam. Cope North 15 is an annual multilateral field training exercise that emphasises the exchange and execution of tactics, techniques and procedures, while enhancing interoperability.

Obviously, I couldn’t resist applying some tilt-shift-ish effects on the photo in order to intensify the diorama feeling. [Tech. Sgt. Jason Robertson/US Air Force]
