Check out Iron Man 2 at Edwards Air Force Base

The U.S. Air Force released two images on Wednesday of Iron Man 2 director Jon Favreau and star Robert Downey Jr. at Edwards Air Force Base in Southern California, where the superhero sequel shot earlier this month.

Scenes from Iron Man 2 shot at Edwards May 11-13 with the support of about 60 of the base's staffers, including airmen and Marines, taking part as extras and technical advisors. The first Iron Man film also shot a few scenes at the air base.

"I really love the hospitality we've gotten here," Favreau told the AF Web site. "I'm grateful they've let us shoot here, and when I saw the assets they've let us shoot and how cooperative they've been, it makes me satisfied, because they enjoyed the experience last time and they feel we've depicted them fairly."
