Picture of the week:
Integrated Maintenance Facility (IMF) Bay Door
- I took this picture around 1979.  The IMF was located in the Weapons Storage Area (part of the original East Loring), and was used in the 1970's for Short Range Attack Missile (SRAM) maintenance.  The door pictured was a blast door and was used to gain entrance to the maintenance bays...I do not know who painted the missile above the door, so maybe someone can tell me.
Ray Ingham (1977-1980)

(08 Jan) - Added documentary  "The Air War in Vietnam" to the decade 1960-1970

(08 Jan) - Note:  The following two films are about the defensive missile systems that ringed Loring and it's outlying communities.  They were first fitted with conventional warheads, but with the Nike Hercules, they were fitted with nuclear warheads...You can read all about the sites around Loring by going to the Reading Room and this excellent site  NIKE AJAX Battery....
