  • Odd sight at local airport

    Yesterday I went to the airport(KBLM) that is about two miles away from my house, and just when I was about to leave I turned and saw behind me a truck parked with this thing on it with a tarp over it, and then realized there was a nose cone and fins sticking out from underneath it. I want to know if anyone knows what the heck this thing is. I don't think its real because it wouldn't just be sitting there like that. Maybe just a prop for something? Looks pretty real and heavy duty though.

    Here it is with the whole truck.


    And a close-up.

    Looks a lot like a Nike Hercules missile.

    They've been out of service for ages so if that is what it is, then perhaps the missile is being prepared for static display.

      Yeah that looks like it.Thanks for the info.

      I went back yesterday and the truck was still there but not the missile. It was pretty cool seeing it there.
