If I am not mistaken, this has to do with the fact that Cyprus is considered the most stable country in the region. This means that some governments would rather have their aircraft parked in LCA than some others when visiting them. I know this was the case a few years ago, not sure if it's still the same. Also didn't mean to get political or offend anyone!

The USAF operates 777s?
Probably a C-32 I guess.

The Air Force doesn't operate 777s. It was either a 757 or 737BBJ (C-32 or C-40). Given the recent talk of US mediation in Cyprus at the MSC and NATO meetings, I'm sure John Heffern made a trip over to Larnaca following those meetings.

This has never been the case with the United States.
