Kimball, Nebraska: Missile Center USA - ICBM Missile (Gone)

A Titan I nuclear missile stands in a park, honoring the hidden missiles that once lurked underground all around Kimball. The top third was blown off in a windstorm in 2009.

Gotte Park

I-80 exit 20. Drive north into town, then turn right onto US Hwy 30/3rd St. Drive a half-mile east, then turn right and drive into Gotte Park. The missile was, just south of the basketball and volley ball courts.

Missile remains.

Titan 1 Missile

The missile is currently being secured for restoration and display by the Wings Over the Rockies Air and Space Museum in Denver. This is fitting, as the Titan I was deployed at Lowry Air Force base where the museum is located (The ICBM base at Kimball was armed with Atlas missiles). I verified in 2014 that the upper stage is laying in the Kimball landfill.

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.
