    I managed to jump on the crew plowing the runway at the naval air station. We all (5 dumps) meet up there in the early AM, after all our contract work is done. No lights,traffic or morons! It's a great way to wind down after the stress of snow service, 5 trucks plowing in tandem, deere everywhere, very cool!!payup

    why do they plow the runways at the weymouth naval air station? Do they still use them for anything except when GM comes in and does their test drive thing?

    runway.

    They use the runway for a tractor/trailer training school, they also want to keep it open for emergency landings. It's a nice hit! payup

    Id imagine its good money, and as you said easy work. I did not know about the tractor trailer training school, but thats a good use for it as of now.

    There is so much open land out there, it's a shame it's all polluted. Show me a military base thats not!
