BLACKWATER Training Facility
BLACKWATER para-military training facility - North Carolina

-A recent flight over NC61 revealed a very interesting para-military training camp/facility in the middle of nowhere in NC, near the Great Dismal Swamp.

-Camp revealed many weapons firing ranges, auto-driving tracks for defensive driving, parachuting, diving, underwater demo, and many other very realistic military training facilities.

-Very interesting to FLY OVER. Doubtful getting a PPR to land there, but there IS an unimproved airfield there for assault landings and light-aircraft training.

-This is a very fascinating piece of "Americana" right here. It is not often you get to fly over a "private military training camp" like this! If you want to attend a course there, see the web site!

-Worth a flight over!
