Dwight is correct. From my I frequently see aerial excercises at this range, complete with countermeasures launched and spotting flares afterward. I'd like to capture a time lapse image of the range when planes are flying and looping around at night. I'm not sure how far they are from Stone Haven, but they're close enough to see easily and moreso with binoculars.
