From: firstname.lastname@example.org (Glenn Campbell, Las Vegas) Date: Mon, 13 Jan 1997 19:14:51 -0800 Subject: Eglin Air Force Base, FL Date: Mon, 13 Jan 1997 14:40:49 -0500 (EST) From: email@example.com In dr36 you were talking about Eglin AFB and its relation to Area 51.. I live near Eglin and can tell you that most of Eglin's weapon test drops take place over its HUGE reservation in northwest FL (At one time, Eglin was the largest air base by land area in the free world... it may still be) However, if you haven't read _The Gulf Breeze Sightings_ (I haven't) my understanding is the gentleman who spotted flying saucers over the reservation had to move out of his house under mysterious circumstances and the new owner "found" a model saucer in the attic, but the new tenant was active duty USAF!!! However, planes taking off from Eglin's main runway take off over a state road, and Hurlburt Field's runway (the nearby Spec Ops base) ends within site of US 98. (As in the landing lights are on both sides of the highway...) Also, Eglin is a weapons test base, not a aircraft test base... Keep up the good work PS If you want to land on Eglin's runway, catch a plane into Okaloosa County Air Terminal (a.k.a. Fort Walton Beach and/or Valpariso airports...) ======================================================================= LINKS FROM GLENN Eglin Official Site: http://www.eglin.af.mil/ Eglin Research Facilties: http://www.wlmn.eglin.af.mil/public/facility.html (Must be plenty of things in the sky around here!)
