Nelson views range in T-38

TYNDALL AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. – Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., visited Tyndall Air Force Base during a stop in Northwest Florida and got a bird’s-eye view of the Gulf Range Training Complex, a large range used by the military in the Gulf of Mexico. Nelson said he has protected such training areas by opposing oil drilling too close to Florida’s shore. His flight was in a T-38 Talon jet piloted by 325th Fighter Wing Commander Col. Michael Hernandez. (Source: News Herald, 04/04/18)
