    Why is the military trying to build another outlying landing field? If there had been as much time and effort and money spent on the EXISTING outlying landing fields that already operating in eastern Carolina, as they have spent trying to find a place to build a new one nobody seems to want near them, there would be "several" world class and diversified landing fields they could use simultainously if need be, Most already equipped with navigational aids and safety equipment.
