Eglin AFB unit begins test missions next week-expect noise
EGLIN AIR FORCE BASE -- Residents may experience noise next week when the 96th Operations Group conducts morning boat operations in the Gulf of Mexico south of Destin. The test missions will run from Aug. 19 to Sept. 13, Monday through Thursday. They are part of the 53rd Wing's Maritime Strike Program.
Fighter aircraft will release munitions in the mornings about 20 nautical miles out in the Gulf. They will be released within a cordoned range safety corridor. Notices to mariners will be issued prior to the
missions, and flyers will be handed out at the local marina.
