eglin is only about 20 to 30 minutes drive from destin, gulf breeze. as a matter of fact there use to be a air force radar station right on the gulf
side of hwy 98 between ft walton bch and destin. if any thing i would tend to believe, that most of the ufo, and uso sighted around here are the
military. many people forget that the moab ( mother of all bombs) was tested here at eglin.
They routinely test aircraft at Eglin. Eglin has the largest clean hangar in the world (for painting aircraft, or at least it did when I still lived
Hurlburt Field is home ot Special Operations Command, and when 9/11 was on-going, President Bush touched down at Hurlburt before he went on to
Louisianna and made his speech. It has never been publicly confirmed, but plenty of us saw AF1, and the fighter escorts, and Hurlburt went into full
lockdown and nobody was allowed outside a building for a good 45 minutes while his plane was on the ground there.
Airborne and Ranger training is done at Eglin, and last I checked Eglin was still the largest Air Force Base in the world in regards to total acreage.
Pensacola NAS is a stone's through down Hwy 98, and it is home to the Blue Angels, and new pilot training, and just up the road the other direction
is Panama City's Tyndal Air Force base. In between Pensacola and Destin, 60 miles or so to the north is the home of Bell Helicopters.
There is so much aircraft activity in this area that it would be impossible for anyone to know the difference between civilian sight-seeing flights,
RC type craft, military craft, or alien craft. The only thing for certain is that nothing would slip past the military observance here, so if it
didn't get shot out of the sky, then it had permission to be there! The barrier islands are riddled with radar sites, and there is always live
ammunition in the air flying around for training on the live ranges. Nothing could fly through this area undetected or unaccosted. No way, no how!
