7. Years ago the area around NAS Oceana was mostly farm country.

But rather keep it that way, which would have been prudent from a safety point of view as jets sometimes do crash, the local authorities allowed the area to be developed.

The Navy could shut down NAS Oceana and transfer everything to a base in a more rural area but then locals would be complaining about the loss of jobs.
