The program back in the "Black Ops Days" F-117A's had codes for divert bases like Nellis if they had an IFE and had to land. I remember now almost 30 years ago it was "Coronet Spark" for Nellis. I recall a former Hill AFB pilot circled Hill until he was bingo fuel then landed. It wasn't a really bad situation he could have made it back to TTR. They parked it in a hangar and he showed it off to few old pilot buddies at Hill. Soon after he was not part of the program. "Heavy Cloud" maybe that was a security code chosen? Maybe every base has different codes for stuff like that??
