Air Force Base Evacuates

By  | 

Forty two F-15Cs headed out Friday afternoon, leaving Eglin Air Force Base for Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio.

By noon Saturday, no one is allowed within 100 miles of the base, and no one seems to mind leaving.

This $5 million machine takes $2,000 just to lower, so Eglin only takes it down when it's absolutely necessary.

This evacuation includes military and civilians attached to the base and their families.

After the hurricane has passed, personnel can call 1-800-435-9941 at Randolph AFB, TX for information on returning.
