    Probably just means you can't stick missiles and warheads back in the "big tall hole"

    It also likely means that the silo must always appear to satellites to be deactivated and impossible to use for a launch. That’s why the silo doors are permanently fixed halfway open at the two missile museums that I’ve been to.

    That's kind of a deal breaker for me. /s

    My brother lives about a half a mile from one of the silos. I figured he liked it that way. Right under the big flash.

    Some covert North Koreans will probably be buying them and moving in!!

    I went to Cheyenne Mountain High School in Colorado Springs, almost on top of NORAD. The running joke at school was that if there was a major problem, we figured that we’d be the first to know...

    Whether I like it or not, I too live essentially "right under the big flash" - I'm about 8 air miles from the Bremerton Naval Shipyard and about 20 air miles from Sub Base Bangor and the Triton Nuclear Missile repository - if anyone decides to nuke the USA, I'm for all intents and purposes right smack at "ground zero" :(

    At least you don't have to worry about the neighbors obstructing the view!
