Al Udeid Air Force Base in Doha, Qatar
In the Gulf region, the Al Udeid Air Base Qatar has the longest runway which is about 5000 meters or 15,000 feet. It can accommodate almost 100 aircrafts. On March 2002, when then-US Vice President Cheney visited the air base Al Udeid Qatar, the runway was opened for midair fuelling.
There are several war planes stationed on the Al Udeid Air Base Qatar which include the F-16 fighters, JSTARS reconnaissance aircraft, and KC-10, KC-130 and KC-135 aerial tankers. These were stationed in the air base since early 2002. Along with the thousands of US soldiers who were permanently stationed in the base are also 50 war planes. In order to accommodate more warplanes and aircraft, the Qatar government has offered to finance a project which approximately costs $400 million in order to upgrade and improve the base, including a permanent housing or dormitories, command and control facility and one million gallon-capacity storage tanks.
