Incerlik Airbase in Turkey

NPR's Ivan Watson reports from Incerlik in southeastern Turkey, base for the U.S. and British warplanes that monitor the no-fly zone over northern Iraq. The pilots say their daily forays into Iraqi airspace, and their increasingly frequent clashes with Iraqi anti-aircraft gunners, are good practice in the event of a new war with Iraq.
