My navy is wasting millions of your tax dollars in Central Florida again!
What’s with the loud Booms?
Residents across Seminole and Orange counties called 911 about the “booms” and posted questions on Face book groups looking for answers.
For the past 20 plus years, if a plane, helicopter, missile, bomb or whatever was on a path like the one in Central Florida it/they would be shot out of the air long before hitting the target!
So; why use old WW-2 ammunition?
Because no one in Florida will join together like they did in places like puerto rico. And stop this Waste of our tax money!

Central Florida in our area must have added a few new neighbors because Central Florida has been bombed for the 20 plus years that we have been here and a lot longer by my navy!
Why you might ask?
Think about this, it is a waste of time and money while scaring animal’s wild and domestic with antiquated ammunition from the WW-2 era!
In today’s wars countries use bombs and/or missiles guided to the target by a computer, so why make the noise during this testing site?
Because, we the citizens cannot stop it!
Will your house shake again?
Navy to continue bombing in Florida Training in Ocala National Forest to take place through Sunday
ORLANDO, Fla. – Did you hear loud booms and feel your house shake Thursday? Turns out, it was caused by the Navy dropping bombs during training in Central Florida.
Residents across Seminole and Orange counties called 911 about the “booms” and posted questions on Facebook groups looking for answers.
More booms and shaking are possible Friday and through the weekend as the Naval Air Station in Jacksonville continues to conduct live and inert bomb training at Pinecastle Range Complex in the Ocala National Forest. According to the facilities schedule, bombing was scheduled to take 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. from Jan. 18 to Jan. 24
The range complex is about 2 miles west of the Camp Ocala campgrounds and near several hiking trails.
It’s common for F-18 jet fighters and other Navy aircraft to drop bombs in the middle of the range.
The explosions and loud noises may push wildlife out of the forest and onto nearby roads.
“Always be mindful of larger animals including black bears and practice bear-wise measures,” officials warn.
Anyone who has a noise complaint is asked to call the Fleet Area Control and Surveillance Facility in Jacksonville at 800-874-5059.
