State land to be used to train

The Air Force will be able to conduct training exercises on state forest lands in Northwest Florida. The Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services' Florida Forest Service signed an agreement late last month that allows the Air Force to use some areas in the Blackwater River State Forest and Tate's Hell State Forest near Apalachicola. Air space has been used for years, but this is the first time the military can use the state forest. (Source: Northwest Florida Daily News, 10/31/12)
