It covers two counties and has a pretty large airstrip. The towns that line Eglin are Fort Walton Beach and Destin. It is on the Chopahatchee bay. Santa Rosa Island is home to the officer and enlisted beach clubs there at Eglin. The EOD School which is currently in Indian Head, MD will be moved there by the year 2000. Here are the runway specs: Runway 01-19 Length: 10,000 x 300 feet Runway 12-30 Length: 12,000 x 300 Communications: ATIS:134.625 & 273.5 This is Eglins Auxilary runway Codename: EGLIN AF AUX NR 3 DUKE runway 18-36 Legnth: 8000 x 300 Tower: 133.2 & 338.7 If you really want to look up a interesting military base it is Blossom Point Proving Grounds. It is a Navy Research Labratory, In 1993 a Marine Blackhawk helicopter was shot down over that facility. Rumor says there is a Electromagnetic Weapon manned there. Autopsy photos revealed uniforms were not burned but their skin was. The wreckage busted up into over millions of peices over a 1 mile area. Military reports say it hit the ground but what do you think? The facility is in a isolated area away from nowhere. It is in Maryland in Charles County. PS It will be on unsolved mysteries in February! THATS Something for you guys to look into Blossom Point Proving Grounds. [This correspondent also says: "I used to live on Eglin and there's nothing there! No UFO crap or anything."]
