Evidence that the picture of the Stingray was taken over this Military Reservation.
Special Operations Training Center has been turned into a National Wildlife Refuge (bird sanctuary).
Airstrip and base (below) viewed from helicopter on 10 May 1994 when it was a Special Operations Training Center for the FBI and West Point.
Note: No landing tire skid marks apparent on tarmac.
Enlargement of hanger, buildings, trailers, and parking lot (5/1994).
Today the base is closed and is being converted to a National Wildlife Refuge.
Parking lot removed - now grass covered, buildings destroyed, hanger missing.
Now look at this!
Matching up landmarks in FESTO photo with topographic features around
the Special Operations base.
As of 2018 the entire airstrip and buildings have been completely removed, and the former military reservation has become a local Shawangunk Wildlife Refuge (bird sanctuary, lol).
