Re: Patriot Missile Battery Suddenly Appears At Small Regional Airport In Texas
Of a patriot system showed up at my nearest podunk airport I would definetly wonder why. They have plenty of military strips to setup on.
 Quoting: Woogy


College Station is home to Texas A&M University.
The Aggies have a huge military cadet corp who use the airport for missile training classes for operation & maintenance. Live fire is conducted at Ft. Bliss in El Paso, TX.

Sorry but the Doom is off. Just a bunch of college kids learning about the Patriot System with inert missiles.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 76690070


A training operation for practice is always the most likely explanation.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 76500010


The Battery was delivered to Easterwood Airport right before classes started at the campus. My kid goes to school at Texas A&M is why I know this tidbit.

How is one missile battery going to protect us from an invasion by the Chinese/Russian/Islamic/Mexican/LGBTQ/BLM/Pygmy hordes?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 78915836


Ypu would be suprised how good patriot missiles are
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 78996756


Not when it first came out in 1976.

It was partly the inspiration for this movie 7 years later.

Re: Patriot Missile Battery Suddenly Appears At Small Regional Airport In Texas
A bit eerie, I must say. Especially that they're deployed.

I mean it's probably a drill, but I imagine all the red tape involved in setting up a drill next to a civilian airport runway...

The optics for the airport are bad as it'll scare business away - who wants to land their airplane or be a passenger of one who lands/takes off there? You'll think they're expecting terrorists targeting the airspace.

The liability for both the workers and the military personell involved having those big ass vehicles rumbling around inside, again, the controlled area of an airport...running from legal to safety to FAA regulations.

Prolly reading too much into it. Still, with this year I'm suspicious.

Readiness drill. The kind of thing professional militaries do. They may be getting ready to deploy overseas.

Re: Patriot Missile Battery Suddenly Appears At Small Regional Airport In Texas
This one is kind of spooky to me considering I just got done re-reading Alas Babylon. Right before the nuclear war, Strategic Air Command dispersed many of their aircraft to small regional airports away from bases and cities...like College Station. Probably not why this is happening, but still spooky.

Also, it seems strange to me that they did it at this airport, without telling anyone. Couldn't the same drill be accomplished at any number of abandoned fields without disturbing civilian air traffic?

I honestly have no idea, maybe it is just a drill, but this one seems odd.

Anyone near other airports got anything to add?

Apparently, very few people, if anyone, at Easterwood Airport in College Station, Texas knew exactly what was going on with the sudden deployment of the Army's preeminent air defense system, either.

"Nobody knows anything, they just showed up" one commercial pilot that flies in and out of Easterwood daily told The War Zone.

Re: Patriot Missile Battery Suddenly Appears At Small Regional Airport In Texas
Could it be stationed there to take out any cruise missiles launched from the Gulf of Mexico...

This is just one Patriot Missile Battery. Would be interesting if it were occurring at other small regional airports that ring the Gulf of Mexico...

Just imagine Tankers or Merchant ships launching cruise missiles (Club-K) off their decks. It would be a very short response time before they hit their intended targets. If the military positions enough of these missile batteries, in key areas, it could provide a small level of protection and limit the damage done by a cruise missile attack...

If you know the area you will understand

most of us don't know the area.

what do you think it means?

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 69352590



I don't live there, but I did spend some significant time in that area years ago. College Station is right between Houston, Austin, and Fort Hood, all of which would be targets in a war. Maybe that is what they are alluding to? Maybe it would be where they would stage outside target areas?

Weird, I read this thread about several military birds up in the air around that area.

No, this is normal. Locals get it, the big city news folks freakout.

That’s what the military does when we aren’t fighting a war (like under Bush, Clinton, Bush, O’Bamma) they exercise for the next one.
