Well, being from Florida, I can attest to the voracity of the Military's presence over and across our state, dating back to the '80's!
I live approximately 60 miles North of MacDill AFB, on the I-75 corridor, and since my High School years, I can remember seeing all sorts of military
aircraft in our skies, as well as hundreds of convoys, passing through, over the decades.
It seems that our little town was a waypoint, as most of the F-16's that would fly over us, at only a few thousand feet of altitude, would do a turn
and burn, and race off towards a different part of the state! The sounds of a few of these, would occasionally catch you off guard, as their speed
would allow them to reach you before their engine roar, did. I remember feeling both awe and pride, whenever their presence was known. Some would
complain, but I felt safer, knowing that our armed forces were keeping their skills sharp, and training more to do the same!
I'm not sure how I feel, about the excercise over Miami. One thing is for sure, though. I never heard a M2 sounding off, at any time, during all of
