Driveout to the Titan Missile Museum
November 28 @ 8:30 AM - 5:00 PM
Good morning OPMC members! Welcome to yet another beautiful day in Paradise! I’ve selected a destination for our ride Saturday November 28! The ride will be to the historic Titan Missile Museum in Green Valley! For those of you not familiar with this site, it is the only remaining Titan missile site in North America. Tucson was surrounded by multiple missile sites during the cold war, and all the others have been sold, filled in, or otherwise destroyed. This site, which houses a decommissioned Titan missile, has been preserved as a reminder of the awesome power the United States possessed during that time of strife.
The Titan II was, and still is, the largest nuclear armed intercontinental ballistic missile in the U.S. weapons inventory. It is truly a sight worth seeing. It stands 103 feet tall and was armed with a nine megaton warhead.
The 45 minute tour takes us underground into the control and command center of a typical Titan missile site, right next to the missile in its silo.
This ride will be an interesting and educational voyage back into the past, viewing things very few people will ever have a chance to see.
The cost is $12.50 for seniors and Pima County residents. Book your tour reservation now for the 11:00 tour on Nov. 28. The website is titanmissilemuseum.org.

Join us at Beyond Bread, Ina and Oracle, for a 9:00 launch! I’ll be there by 8:30 to get my customary chocolate fix prior to launch!
Have a great day and stay safe! Ian
