Summer 2016 Pt 9

Titan Missile Museum
The last surviving Titan missile in the world
(de-activated of course!)

103 feet of  Cold War weaponry.
Able to launch in 58 seconds
and deliver a 9 mega-ton nuclear warhead to a target 6300 miles away 
in 30 minutes.


It doesn't bear thinking about.


The silo is located underground in the middle of Green Valley, AZ.


The underground base it's self is not very big and, for some not very high so for those over 6ft tall
hard hats were the order of the day.

They look something out of the Village People!!


It was a really great place to visit and interesting to discover what was happening 
in the 1980s when we were all totally oblivious as to what was really going on.
