Planning Inspector Alan Novitzky will be touring the Middlemoor area over Tuesday and Wednesday, to see the lay of the land for himself.
The inquiry being held at the Northumberland Hall broke for two days to allow site visits to be carried out.
Mr Novitzky will be taken to see the Middlemoor area, as well as the Black Law wind farm in South Lanarkshire, Scotland, which became the largest operating wind farm in the UK when it was officially opened in 2006.
Protesters to the Middlemoor scheme flew a large balloon 125m above the site on Tuesday to show the inspector the height of the proposed turbines.
The inquiry is due to resume in Alnwick on Thursday, when the Ministry of Defence will make its closing statements.
The RAF have lodged serious objections to Middlemoor, as well as other wind farms proposed in Northumberland, because of the potential impact on national air defence radar capability.
Middlemoor’s turbines, they say, would cause massive disruption to the remote radar head at Brizlee Wood, just a few miles away on Alnwick Moor.
