It looks like Siloman is selling his Atlas F silo. Take a look here... http://cgi.ebay.com/Atlas-F-ICBM-Missil ... otohosting If only I had the money to buy it...

Perhaps we could put together a cartel and buy the Mercenary Missileer a new HQ. If that fails there is always the option of a butt load of bake sales and car washes.

Who knows, Cape Canaveral may still have some Atlas boosters laying in a back lot somewhere…

I know either Norton or George AFB stored them for use at VAFB. Got to see them in 1968, but they probably have all been used for satellites. They were stored on their side and kept pressurized. I remember an Atlas launch when I was at VAFB for training, woke up with the whole BOQ shaking.
