Student and instructor pilots from Kingsville, Texas, were training Saturday morning with T-45 Goshawks, training jets, out at the site north of here, said Cmdr. T. Robinette, operations officer for Naval Air Facility El Centro. One of the pilots dropped a 25-pound inert training round, which landed no more than 200 feet from the target.
