Missile silo

Aug 19, 2012
Flying from Wall, South Dakota.

Once into South Dakota the land goes flat and stays so forever to the east......

But that's an interesting installation in the foreground...
It's obvious now, but used to be camouflaged into the prairie.

It's an old extinct Minuteman missile silo,
 which used to have a nuclear bomb aimed at the USSR.....
Now the bomb is gone, but the missile remains as a tourist attraction.
