I am glad that those who work(ed) there aren't talking. If any of you want to check that base out join the Air Force and put Wright-Patterson on your
dream sheet and see if you get orders there.
Maybe someone who works there will bring you on base and show you around. Taking pictures is allowed in certain areas of any base. If you want to take
pictures of other areas clear it with the base's public affairs office first. You don't want Security Forces to have you on the ground with a gun
pointed at you. That is some important info to keep anyone out of trouble.
You can schedule tours, but you need to provide them info about your group and no more then 25 people. 30 day advance notice is required. Itineraries
are individually planned base on each group's requirements. Don't take that the wrong way and ask for a tour of the supposed underground facilities,
but you never know if you don't ask.
This is off the public .mil site for this base. I think some of this info will make you wonder about what goes on there.
Wright- Patterson AFB, Ohio
is one of the largest and most important bases in the United States Air Force.
is the birthplace, home, and future of aerospace.
is managed and maintained by Aeronautical Systems Center, the Air Force organization responsible for developing, acquiring, modernizing and sustaining
the world's best aerospace systems.
is in many measures the largest, most diverse and organizationally complex base in the Air Force. Missions range from acquisition and logistics
management, to research and development, education, flight operations, and many other defense related activities.
is home to the foremost aeronautical and aerospace research organization in the Air Force, the Air Force Research Laboratory.
has a workforce numbering approximately 22,000 people, making it the fifth largest employer in the state of Ohio and the largest employer at a single
location. Nearly 10,000 of these people are civilians.
includes the Air Force Institute of Technology which trains thousands of students each year and the Air Force Museum which receives more than 1.2
million visitors a year.
I wouldn't mind working there if they asked me, sounds like a cool place.
