Destin, Florida (WKRGMore) — Destin drivers and waterside drivers at Mahler Bridge saw a huge military vessel making waves on Crab Island on Friday morning.
Eglin Air Force Base confirmed it was a Navy ship, not an Air Force ship. An Air Cushion Landing Craft (LCAC) is a high-speed transport vessel that can operate both on water and on land.
The Navy uses LCACs to bring weapons and services ashore from warships. One Friday from the Naval Surface Warfare Center in Bay County, Florida.
A viewer working on the docks of Crab Island Jimmy’s sent the video to WKRG.
WKRG News 5 has contacted the Naval Surface Warfare Center in Panama City for more information. Our efforts have not paid off.
