Well, as some pointed out, the Barstow Dagget Muni airport is to the east and to the west is the Marine base. I don't know how much you can call those separate things because I've seen a few to dozens of helicopters on the tarmac of the Muni- airport at various times and they were Marine. Google shows what looks like a formal helicopter base on the rear of the Muni property which explains that.
I've seen them doing touch and go landings of Marine Osprey aircraft right around there as well. Now those were impressive as ever to see because it was just right there off the interstate. So close and those things are BIG in person. Anyway... Nothing much surprises me immediately around that Marine base but I think this is tied both to the Muni airport and the USMC stuff.
Nice catch in seeing it.
