GGR got a sneak peak at the outside of a new training facility at the Malmstrom Air Force Base. The first phase the 80,000-square-foot fitness center at cost $12 million.

The grand opening featured balloon animals, a petting zoo, and a pin the tail on the pilot booth. Unfortunately, this event was only open to enlisted personnel from the USAF.

A USAF Spokesman announced in the press release that the new training center will promote fun for the whole crew. They will even be having monthly "bring your kid to play days" to share in the vast nothingness that their parents have come to know as a career in the USAF.

The new center has volleyball courts, sewing and knitting classes, a state of the art Wii Sports Center, Hot-tubs for 2, and locker rooms big enough for a crew of 4 (Don't ask). The facility's second phase will include a swimming pool for deck crews to practice their synchronized swimming routines, and "other" amenities. Despite several requests, USAF Spokesman stated that details on these other amenities are deemed classified.
