Kikker that's a C-17 and I suspect that's Bagrum Airbase. At least from the pictures I've seen. Neat picture though.

C17 Globemaster III, appears to be on takeoff. She can take off and land on runways as short as 3,000 feet and as narrow as 90 feet wide and is capable of a complete a 180-degree star turn in 80ft. The aircraft can also carry out routine backing. A fully loaded aircraft is capable of backing up a 2% gradient slope using the directed flow thrust reversers. It also does not need a poaved runway. If you do a search you will find photos of it taking off and landing in the desert.

I worked on that program for almost 10 years. Sad to think it may come to an end soon, its one hell of an aircraft.

Let's see - caption for the first shot - "Should have let the SeaBees finish this one!"

Caption for the second shot - "I wish Mustang would quit doing 180s around the bow of this carrier!"
