The view on Google Earth of
"Reynolds Airpark Green Cove Springs, Fla"
This is very interesting.
I say interesting not only because of the thousands of vehicles on the runways but because of the pier side facilities at the waterfront or the
A look at the waterway leading back to Mayport Fla. and the Jacksonville Naval Air Station, shows numerous draw bridges or high arched bridges
sufficient for tall deep draft ships to make it to these numerous pier side facilities.
Having worked at numerous piers over the years, I can say with reasonable certainty that the pier side facilities at the Reynolds Airpark Green Cove
Springs, Fla. are relatively new piers as these facilities go.
They are in very good condition meaning they are not that olde and not that used.
There do not appear to be any cranes mounted on these piers. What they also appear to be is well built and expensive piers..not some wooden piers used
for fishing by the locals.
What they appear to be is piers onto which roll on roll off ships can load or unload their cargo with expediency. You know..roll on roll off..like the
ships which deliver your Honda's and Toyota's...by the thousands.
Whatever is being stored on this base can be moved quickly by ship.
I also know that numerous piers like this have been built all across this country since the first Gulf war back in 1991 or so. The government found
itself woefully unprepared for large naval transport and hence roll on roll off ships are kept ready to go to facilities like this one and on and off
load cargo's and materials for war and deployment/emergencies.
However...this is a major depot where this equipment is stored as evidenced by the numbers of new and expensive piers built here.
This is a major storage depot for on and off loading these vehicles. My question is how long has this stuff been stored here at this facility.
I suspect that maintenance facilities are also here as evidenced by the various shipping containers..probably for portable repair facilities to keep
the vehicles going where ever they are sent in the world.
This appears to be a very mobile operation ..designed for going at a moments notice...by plane, rail, or ship.
It appears to me that America has become a depot for UN facilities. They are operataing out of here.
As I stated...I wonder how long this stuff has been here??
