Missile Center USA - ICBM Missile

The top 1/3 of the missile is gone, blown away in a Wizard of Oz-type event. The bottom of the missile is still there.

The top of the missile is sitting in the landfill while negotiations continue with local groups to get it refurbished and reattached.

Titan I Missile in City Park

I worked on the red nose cone (reentry vehicle) that was used on this very missile when it was out in California. I made a special trip to see this missile which I had seen on an internet website. I was extremely disappointed when I got there. The very item that I worked on was missing -- the nose cone was blown off in a storm several years ago. The earlier tip photo doesn't reflect what it really looks like because I don't believe the town is going to restore it.

In Gotte Park there's an obsolete 100 ft. Titan Missile representing the 200 Intercontinental Ballistic missiles in this area.

[David Hupf, 01/12/2003]

It's a Titan 1 missile. In a photo from our visit long ago, the sign reads "Missile Center U.S.A.," and features the Strategic Air command emblem of an armored fist squeezing lightning bolts.
