NOTE: I put the country as Spain but these are the Canary Islands.

The Canary Islands Air Command (Mando Aereo de Canarias--MACAN) was a mixed unit equipped to carry out multiple missions--interceptor, ground attack, transport, surveillance, and antisubmarine--at a distance of 1,500 kilometers from the mainland. Its air fleet included a squadron of Mirage F-1s armed for both interceptor and ground attack operations, a unit of ten CASA C-212 Aviocar light transports, and a squadron equipped for antisubmarine warfare with Fokker F-27 patrol aircraft and Aerospatiale AS-332B Super Puma helicopters.

Name seems very generic to me. Is it's name actually "Spanish Air Force Facility", or does it have a more... distinctive name.
