...US Air Force F-15's shortly after landing in Grenada.

A temporary US Air Force base has been set up on the tarmac of Grenada's international airport for high-security support of President Obama's visit to the Summit of the Americas in the neighboring island nation of Trinidad this week.

In total, there were ten fighters parked on the runway today; teams of two were taking off and landing throughout the day while patrolling the Eastern Caribbean airspace ahead of Obama's arrival.

And for the record, "There's two O's in Goose, boys."
