Re: Sometimes a dirt pile is just a dirt pile

The Air Force would NEVER place a big pile of dirt between an active runway and the apron unless there is a GREAT reason. The dirt pile blocks the view of the active runways from a portion of the flightline (not a good idea) and would prevent direct access to security and firefighting vehicles to parts of the runway so the berm is put there to block OUR view if the ramp from Tikaboo. So it means that whatever aircraft that will be on the ramp will be hidden from us, and since if it was only one or teo, they would be hangared, but since the berm is so large, the Aircraft must be large and more than one or two (indicating pre-operational status). As far as tunnelling - if they were going to tunnel they would hide the stuff somewhere else not right infront of our eyes. The berm is to hide the ramp and hanger from Tikaboo - nothing else fits.
