Titan I Missile sign. Confederate Nuclear Missile

The missile is right off the highway, just behind a gas station. Easy to get to and only takes a few minutes to see. Worth a quick stop if you like history.

Confederate Air Force Titan I Missile. Confederate Nuclear Missile

This was an easy stop-off from I-75 but left us with a little more confusion than we came with -- the sign skirts around the actual purpose of the missile, as well as the reason for its creation. An interesting find nonetheless!

Missile - Rads-4-U?

Rumor has it that the missile has lost a little height in the past few years. It seems that although the nuclear material was removed from the warhead before being placed in the parking lot, the top of the missile was still spewing radiation on everyone in the area, so the warhead's casing had to be removed.

Rocket at Krystals.    Confederate Missile

Ironically, this antique symbol of Man's pioneering quest for knowledge stands, majestically, next to a Krystal hamburger stand, allowing you to grab a quick bite before returning to space. Fast food, fast transportation, progress marches on...
