The TMM is based on preserved Titan II missile complex 571-7, which is all that remains of the 54 Titan II missile sites that were on alert across the United States from 1963 until 1987. Launched from its underground silo in just 58 seconds, the Titan II ICBM was capable of delivering a 9-megaton nuclear warhead to targets more than 6,300 miles away in about 30 minutes. This once top-secret place is now a National Historic Landmark.
As always, the AEHS 2017 Convention will include a full day of outstanding presentations covering a wide range of topics. Please don't miss this opportunity to see, hear, learn, and visit with other engine enthusiasts.
