My Silo Video

This compilation was an invitation to all my friends to join me at the silo for my 50th birthday celebration. Most of the original stills are of my site and taken in 1963 at the time the missile was being delivered to the silo. The film of the exploding Atlas missile was an event at Vandenberg Air Force Base at the time the Atlas System was being tested. They never did improve them much before deployment and many actually exploded in their silos, thankfully not mine. However, when I first visited the site in 1996, it really did look as if a bomb had hit it. It's taken all that time to get it where it is today. Contact me if you'd like to visit:)
