Titan I Missile Silo

This is the launch silo for an early 1960s Titan I ICBM, delivering a 3.75 megaton nuclear warhead. It is part of an underground complex of three missile silos plus all the supporting infrastructure: propellant, water, control equipment, power generation, fuel, and living space for the operators.

The underground structures were mostly flooded, and I was not sufficiently educated on the site layout in order to gain access to the lower levels. Nonetheless, it was a rewarding visit.
