Eglin eyes beachfront resort

EGLIN AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. - Eglin Air Force Base wants to use some of its 17-acre beachfront test site as a military resort. The proposed Emerald Breeze Resort could provide a revenue stream. Test Site A-5 is a mostly bare parcel that has a small storage building with antennae only occasionally used to support test missions. The military pictures a 250-room resort. The Air Force will accept public comments until March 12. (Source: Northwest Florida Daily News, 01/22/09)
