That runway in the picture was not active at the time I lived there and we crossed it to get from the main part of the tiny base to the housing area.
This is a video with awesome still photos that were taken about 17 years after the base closed (so the pictures are recent). I left shortly before the final base closure. It's interesting to see what happens when "nature" is allowed to take over. I didn't see my own street housing, but my apartment was very similar to the ones in the video. I did have to take a close look at a picture of an overgrown bougainvillea, because it was in the same relative location as one at the front of my apartment.
I was delighted and thrilled to get the assignment to Sicily. I had never lived overseas and who wouldn't want to move to a Mediterranean island? The base was closing at the time I arrived, and Iraq had just invaded Kuwait. There was a lot of tension and a lot of the military members on the base were gone to Desert Storm. But . . . it was still a Mediterranean island with thousands of years of history right out the back fence.
It was one of my favorite places I've ever lived.
