What are all of the loud noises we hear at night?
These are the sounds of freedom! Eglin Air Force Base is the home of the 96th Air Force Test Wing and Hurlburt Field is the home of the Air Force Special Operations Command (AFSOC).
Day and night maneuvers keep the USA team ready when needed. You may hear the sound of bombs and rounds of gun fire used on the practice and test range. There is also a wide variety of aircraft flying over the gulf and Santa Rosa Sound, which may rattle the windows a little. Navarre is very proud of our military and find comfort in the sounds of the night.
