I agree with Blade. Week and a half ago I was hired to shoot a function at the Jacksonville NAS Officers Club. I got there early as I always do but Security wouldn't let me thru the gate. I explained to them my situation to no avail. Many many phone calls and an hour later my sponsor showed up to get me on the base. It wasn't happening any other way and I had legit business there. Wish it weren't that way, but it is. GL.

Being a foreign national isn't going to help your cause either. I wouldn't press the issue much. Just get used to looking at the base through the fence. There isn't really much on the base anyway that you can't see from the outside.

Actually there is, but you need to be an invited guest or member of a NATO or other cooperating air force, preferably a pilot. How many of you have actually touched an F-22? The feel of the metal reminds me of a Ferrari. It is just perfection.

Not true. The best way to go inside would be during a media day during Red Flag. However in order to apply you must have credentials from a major media outlet and a letter of intent. Foreign nationals are regularly accepted, the past three Red Flags I shot from inside there was always a group of people from different European countries.
