This was always part of the plan that BW made with the Navy when the Navy choose the Hale Lake site for the new OLF. No way BW Air service company could co-exsist with the OLF... look at the maps of the OLF for yourself..
The Navy promises 60 low paying jobs and Currituck / Camden looses hundreds of jobs now.

This smells to high heavens. This should be a 60 minutes story. Where's the media on this story?

Once AAR had purchased Black water, It was down hill after that. Aircraft Maintenance experience at it's all time low. Personnel leaving in droves.
