Approximately 40 of these flights are made each month by two to four C-130 Hercules transport aircraft traveling at heights between 500 and 1000 feet and at speeds of 250 miles per hour. All training flights originate at Duke Field, seven miles south of Crestview. The first low- altitude formation route, which will be used during the week, extends east of Duke Field to Blountstown, Fla. The three other routes are flown both dur- ing the week and weekends and extend northwest of Duke Field into Southern Alabama. Aircraft taking the first route proceed from Duke Field to a lake northeast of DeFuniak Springs where they turn south- ,east lo.North Bay near Lynn Ha- ven: They then travel toapoint just west of Blountstown. Their return trip carries them between Marianna and Cotton- dale where they turn west to Laurel Hill, then to a drop zone off Highway 285 and back to Duke Field. On the second route, aircraft proceed from Duke Field to a road intersection on 1-65 north of Atmore, Ala. They then head north to a sawmill near Grove Hill and then turn Northeast until they reach another sawmill 10 miles south of Camden. From that point, they begin their return trip which passes a rGad intersection on 1-65 northeast of Evergreen and a Yellow Ri- ver bridge on Highway 55 near Florala. From there, theypro- ceed south to the drop zone off Highway 285 and then back to Duke Field. The third and fourth routes are from Duke Field to a road intersection west of Baker to Wing to an overpass on the In- terstate west of Evergreen. From this point route three turns Northeast to a point just south of Georgiana. Routefour turns Northwest to a bridge just north of Monroeville, then to a road intersection on the East side of Camden, next south of Georgiana where it joins with route three. From this point the two routes pass to the west of Andalusia and Florala to the drop zone off Highway 285 and back to Duke Field. The 919th Tactical Airlift Group, activated 2 I/2 years ago is the only Air Force Reserve unit located "in Northwest Flo- rida.
