QID05 K35R 61-0288 EGUN-EGUN 0900Z 0200

Many thanks Jeroenbeijer that looks to be the answer to the question I've been looking for. Couldn't decide if it was worth risking the snow or not!!

To match the content offered by plmc135, it would seem that there is already a contingent of US Navy military police on the scene.
