  European Air Bases

So you've downloaded a couple Mirage aircraft and they look pretty good.  But they look a little out of place sitting on the ramp at a civilian airport.  There are military airbases included in the default Flight Simulator scenery.  But as with many included airports they are a little sparse in the area of buildings, taxiways, etc.

It is very common for NATO and other military units to cross train and/or participate in each other's air shows.  This means flying to one or the other's base of operations.  So I've collected several air bases of other European nations below with an emphasis on those operationg the Mirage.
