Hello, I'm a new member here, from Madeira Island, Portugal. We'll I've recently gotten some information from a very well known journalist(he has
lot's of military contacs) here that there are "things" (maybe installations, underground) related with the military here that are kept top secret.
That automatically made me curious but I couldn't get anything out of him.. we have 3 military bases here that I know of (one is the navy radio
command) but nothing that big, none of them seem out of the normal for the basic defense of the Island. What could the Portuguese military be hiding
here that is so important to be kept top secret? There is a plan for the construction of a big NATO radar on one of the highest peaks of the island
but that is of general knowledge. The island is in a strategical position in the Atlantic, as like the Azores where an American Air Force base is
installed. Maybe they're hiding armament or something? Oh, and we've been having more and more activity in the skies, Portuguese and American
F-16's passing by at night on Patrol. I don't know if I'm exaggerating here but It doesn't hurt to imagine. Any thoughts on this? or any articles
you may find I'd be very thankful.
Here's a photo taken from space of the island:
And heres some pics from around the island:
