Camp Peary ("The Farm")
the CIA's covert airline
Camp Peary ("The Farm"), also known as the Camp Peary Naval Reservation, located near Williamsburg and bordered by the York River in York County, Virginia, is widely alleged to be a CIA training facility.
As of July 2005, Camp Peary was "a sister site to the CIA's facility at Harvey Point, NC." 
Landings by civil-registered aircraft
Flight records accessed in June 2006 show that Tepper Aviation's N2189M is a regular visitor to the facility. That aircraft has been previously alleged to have been involved in extraordinary rendition.
Aviation Worldwide Services' N964BW also visited Camp Peary on at least two occasions in the first half of 2006. And N962BW, registered to Presidential Airways, Inc., flew there in May of that year. Both companies operate the aviation contracting arm of Blackwater USA, a well-known private military corporation.
Camp Peary was "originally established on the banks of the York River in 1942 as a training camp for Navy SeaBees, and later included a Prisoner of War camp." "At some point following WW2, the property was transferred from the Navy to the Central Intelligence Agency, which made Camp Peary its field operations training site." 
The facility, which occupies "about 9,275 acres of land" in a "wooded area enclosed with chain-link fences, barbed wire, guards and 'No Trespassing' signs, has been an enigma along Interstate 64" since it opened January 22, 1952. 
Camp Peary is located just east of Route 143, the Camp Peary/Colonial Williamsburg exit (Exit 238) of Interstate 64.
