Brunswick Part Two- The Nukes

The nuclear weapons storage area at Brunswick is the smallest one that I’ve come across. It sits atop a small hill with the surrounding woods clear cut to provide a clear line of sight for the Marine’s who once guarded the weapons.

Back To The Cold War: Brunswick NAS

Okay, back to the business of posting pictures. Towards the end of 2013 I did a lot of traveling to work on The Cold War Project. Thanks to some unexpected and pleasant surprises when it came to getting access to sites that I’d had my eye on for a while. It was an incredibly productive time that I’m just now starting to get scanned in.

So, let’s start with the former Brunswick Naval Air Station in Maine. This is the most freshly closed base that I’ve visited, having closed in 2011. During the Cold War the base was mostly home to submarine hunting aircraft and was housed a small nuclear weapons depot.

Cold War Goodness: More Alameda NAS

Here’s a bit more from my Alameda Naval Air Station Stop.

Cold War Goodness: Alameda NAS

Back in January I took a trip out to the San Francisco area from some R&R and to work on my Cold War project. This will be the first of a whole lot of posts with work from that trip as I get it scanned it. The first stop, Alameda Naval Air Station. The base closed in the 90’s and has since been converted into an industrial park and shooting location for Mythbusters.
