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...)
