The Missiles of Dayton

When I first visited the Air Force Museum at Wright Patterson, decades ago, they had a rather visually striking display of various ballistic missiles out in the front of the entrance; these were of course exposed to deterioration from the Ohio weather, and have since been removed, refurbished, and put on display in the facility’s Missile Gallery. Today, there are only the pads left out front, but on a cold day in June 1992, there was a Thor, Titan I, Jupiter, Minuteman IA and Minuteman III on display.
