[travel] Weird stuff in ABQ

Saw some weird stuff from the plane windows coming and going from ABQ.

On the way in, there was this odd business with very short runways, which I figured to be a VTOL facility or heliport, presumably as part of Kirtland AFB.

On the way out, there was this thing, which is basically a bridge over a pit with overhead frameworks, sort of like a mine header, supporting what appears to be a section of (simulated?) runway. Again, I presume some aspect of Kirtland AFB, perhaps for training. Without a low-angle photo, which I failed to take from the airplane window, it's difficult to describe, but I had a lot of trouble envisioning what this was for.
