More About Eglin Air Force Base

The land Eglin Air Force Base sits on was donated by northwest Florida businessman and aviation enthusiast James Plew in the 1930s.

The US Army Air Corps created a gunnery training range soon afterwards and began to host pilots and aircrew on the base. 

After the end of World War II, the site became home to more and more complex testing of airplanes and other critical weapons systems as the Cold War between the US and the Soviet Union heated up. 

The base now boasts up to 8,500 active duty personnel and thousands of civilians and contractors who support the various tests and missions on base.
