    During WWII there was a training field on Quintette Road, between 95A and Hwy 29.

    It is my understating that there is crash wreckage in the Escambia River swamp, that was unrecoverable.

    I agree with Mr.Metoo to the fullest. The bird needs to fly again and we need to get chip in office as soon as the opportunity arises. I live one road south of quintette and could smell what seemed to be an electrical fire during the search. According to the escambia fire/ems radio, life flight was requested to fly over and check everything out but wasn’t available at the time. If we had the county chopper back, they wouldn’t have to ask lifeflight to postpone their normal duties.

    They are trying to keep it quiet but they are filming Iron Man vs the Quintette Swamp Monster.

    Monster was winning……..
    Tony flamed out.

    We saw a light falling and my husband thought it might be a helicopter or airplane around 5:00 PM in the Barrineau Park area.

    Maybe the 5 Star General Sheriff knows someone with a helicopter who can help with the search…sure would be nice to have one of them flying machines for searches. All you need is the chopper, pilots, a hanger,and ferderal grant money for maintenance.Oh man we had those.Maybe Chip will bring them back.

    There was a plane flying around our area that sounded like it was having some difficulties. Someone one called it in. It was not meter showers.

    The Leonid meteor shower peaks tonight. In all probability it could have been a low-entry meteor. I have seen them in near daylight conditions and they resemble an aircraft breaking up.

    We saw something burning falling from the sky to the west of Hwy 29 south of Jimmy’s grill at 5:00 PM this evening.
