#ICYMI The 96th Test Wing's new cyberspace test group has been activated. Col. Bryan Choi assumed command of the new group during an activation ceremony at the Bayview Club earlier this week. http://bit.ly/2BNrssg #DYK Activation ceremonies are deeply rooted in military tradition and date back to the time of Frederick the Great of Prussia. When soldiers followed their leader into combat, the flag was always staffed above the battle and within sight of all. If one’s banner still waved following the conflict, it symbolized glorious triumph. The modern day ceremony is principally symbolic, yet still indicates to all the authority of the assuming commander in the finest of military traditions. #FlyFightWin #FlashbackFriday 33rd Fighter Wing 53d Wing - Eglin AFB AFMS - Eglin - 96 Medical Group Eglin Life Greater Fort Walton Beach Chamber of Commerce Niceville Valparaiso Chamber of Commerce Destin Chamber of Commerce Crestview Area Chamber Navarre Chamber Greater Navarre Area Chamber of Commerce Walton Area Chamber of Commerce Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office Escambia County Sheriff's Office Santa Rosa County Sheriff's Office Walton County Sheriff, Michael A.

This day in 1941 Pearl Harbor was attacked. Today we honor and remember those lost and those who entered World War II. During that time Eglin Air Force Base became the Army Air Force Proving Ground Center and conducted 49 tests in 1941. In 1942 they conducted 315 tests and by the end of #WWII 3000 tests were conducted. Eglin tested every U.S. aircraft, many enemy aircraft and almost every weapon used in that war. #HonorThem #ThursdayThoughts 33rd Fighter Wing 53d Wing - Eglin AFB The 7th Special Forces Group AFMS - Eglin - 96 Medical Group Greater Fort Walton Beach Chamber of Commerce Niceville Valparaiso Chamber of Commerce Destin Chamber of Commerce Crestview Area Chamber Walton Area Chamber of Commerce Navarre Chamber Greater Navarre Area Chamber of Commerce

Hurricane Irma update

Hurricane Irma projection

Hurricane Irma projection

The 96th Weather Squadron issued its latest report/update and projections for Hurricane Irma.

Hurricane Irma's forecast track remains consistent, with minimal impacts to Eglin Test Training Complex expected.  Winds gusting to 40 knots are expected Monday for site D3 (Cape San Blas) and W-151/470 as well as waves of five to seven feet over W-151/470.

On September 8 at 7 a.m., the National Hurricane Center issued an update for Hurricane Irma.  The center of Irma is located at 21.7N and 73.8W, roughly 495 miles Southeast of Miami. The hurricane's intensity remains at 135 kt (155 mph), which is a Category Four hurricane.  The current movement of Irma is towards the West-Northwest at 14 kt.  The forecast hurricane track is West-Northwestward, where the core of Irma will move between the North coast of Cuba and the Bahamas during the next day or two, and be near the Florida Keys and the Southern Florida Peninsula by Sunday morning, as a major Category Four hurricane.

The southern portion of Florida (Miami, Homestead, Key Largo) is less than two days away from experiencing direct impacts from Hurricane Irma. Irma is expected to be a Category Four storm, and impacts to portions of the southern Florida peninsula are extremely likely. The projected track, is for Hurricane Irma to trek west-northwestward, then turn sharply towards the Southern tip of the Florida peninsula.

As Team Eglin assists in the support to evacuees or relief operations to impacted areas, expect minimal weather impacts Friday through Tuesday. Winds will slowly increase to 30-35 kt out of the northwest by Mon, with a chance for showers and thunderstorms Sunday afternoon into Monday morning.

In addition, Hurricane Katia is in the Southern Gulf of Mexico, 700 miles Southwest of ETTC.  It is forecasted to drift Southwestward into Southern Mexico and is not a threat to Eglin. 

Tropical Storm Jose, which is approximately 800 miles southeast of Hurricane Irma, is also in the Atlantic. It is forecast to trek northwestward and impacts to Eglin are unlikely. 

The 96th Test Wing Emergency Management team is conducting training classes on hurricane preparedness today at 10 a.m.  These training classes are informational and are NOT a specific preparatory effort for an imminent hurricane threat.  The classes will be available at the Enlisted Heritage Hall near the Base Exchange.
