Here's a couple recent helicopter overflight clips to try
and give you some sense of how large this field really is.
The camping area is roughly 100 acres by itself, the vendor
area, which has a number of stand alone buildings, including
a cafe probably covers 4-5 more acres and as you'll see
the rest is a mixture of woods and wooded ravines and more
open areas. There's also a real bridge, several dozen mostly
one story 'battle damaged' structures, plus a 2 story church
and dozens and dozens of various types of bunkers.

NOTE: Helicopter offers rides typically lasting about 5-7
minutes long for 20-25 bucks per seat. Holds 3 paying
passengers and pilot.
The following clips were all produced by various units, as their
way of helping to generate unit recruiting.
