Titan II Trip

SCC Command and Control Trip (Nov 18-19, 2017) Hosted by the McClellands and Osters Saturday November 18 We will caravan to the Titan II Missile Silo & Museum in Sahuarita for a tour of the facility.  On this tour, you'll descend two flights of stairs into the underground missile complex. You'll visit the launch control center and experience a simulated launch of the missile. Then you'll journey down the cableway to level 2 of the missile silo to get an up-close look at the Titan II missile itself.  Finally, you'll stand on top of the launch duct and look down on the Titan II missile from above. There is a limit of 25 people on this tour.  There is an elevator that can hold up to 4 people if you can’t walk down stairs. No backpacks, drawstring bags, or large bags are allowed on the tour.  For those not wanting to go underground, there is plenty to see above ground, including exhibits and a view of the entire missile and silo from above.  This is included in the Admission price. http://www.titanmissilemuseum.org/ Following the tour, we will drive 3 mi south to stay at the Best Western in Green Valley at special discounted rates.  Dinner will be at nearby Los Agaves Restaurant, serving Mexican and American entrees. Do not book lodging until you receive a confirmation email with the discount code. Sunday, November 19 After breakfast at Best Western, we will head east to the Pima Air and Space Museum to view a portion of their vast collection.  We will meet for a private walking and Tram tour of the Museum, giving a sense of aircraft at the end of the WWII and at the height of the Cold War.  Our tour guide served on a nuclear submarine during the Cold War, having direct experience with simulated launches of Trident missiles akin to the Titan II system visited the day before. http://www.pimaair.org/ Lunch will be in the museum’s Flight Grill.  Members may then view additional items in the collection or depart at their leisure. Schedule and reservation information will be provided in a Confirmation email after Sign Ups are completed.  A Pre-Payment will be required to cover the cost of the Admissions and two tours.  Cost is $26.50 per person. Some remarks about the Titan II Missile Incident may be given by John McClelland if an appropriate venue can be found.
