This is the most explosive exit I've ever seen! And the Krystal next door makes the perfect photo op. I'll have a sackful of burgers with a side of fries and plutonium. And super size it, please!

The Confederate States of America ceased to exist in 1865, but that didn't stop "Confederate Air Force Pad No. 1" from receiving this missile in 1969. Yankees, beware!
