Re: WTF?! Air Force missile site south of Lubbock, TX! (updated links)
If we knew what type they were, we could find the range. I wondered if it wasn't for Amarillo, too. It'd be a straight line past Lubbock airport, but much farther north.
 Quoting: Texan Buckeye


They are CATM-120C AMRAAM missiles(*training missiles..supposedly*) The range is about 45 miles.
 Quoting: Rabid Wolf


Thx. Then Amarillo is way too far away. It would even be a little stretch for Lubbock. This makes no sense.
 Quoting: Texan Buckeye

Doesn't quite make it. It's 63 miles from Fluvanna to Lubbock.

odd looking stuff.. right out there in broad daylight..
 Quoting: ceawaves


Not too odd, being so close to the border. Here in Northern Illinois there is a high school that was built on an old Nike Missile base. Yes Nike, the same as the shoe company. The purpose of these missiles was to intercept USSR bombers coming over the north pole.
 Quoting: CharlieMurphy


I dunno, Charlie. It's not close to the border. It's actually about 3-400 miles to El Paso, maybe a little more. It's even farther to other border points.

Ok, based on the responses, I am going to the site and taking additional pictures with my slr. I am seriously concerned with the fact that there are anti-aircraft missiles pointed strait at my hometown with absolutely NO info from my local, state or national government. Can't say I'm really surprised.....

Hey Informed1. Ron Roberts just said during the weather report that the weather cam at Lake Alan Henry was taken out during the storm. It probably was, but it's awfully convenient. Hhhmmmm.....

Wow. One of my boys went to Tech. Glad he's back in town but concerned for you guys out there. Wtf?

Remember a couple of years ago, I think it was the Lubbock sheriff at a town meeting or something like that, and was saying they didn't like the encroaching fed gov? This was a few months after NDAA and he was not liking it. I remember feeling a little relieved that he was speaking out and my boy was out there.

*IF* this is actually near Lake Henry Allen, it's no where near Lubbock. It's near Synder Texas, home of the no.2 most earth quakes in Texas.

However, it's more likely part of Dyess AFB since Dyess is on 84. Seems like somebody had no clue where they were.

It's actually about a mile west of hwy 84 on FM 1269 towards Fluvana. Yes, it is closer to Snyder, but 99% of the people on this forum wouldn't have a clue where Snyder was, but would know of Lubbock. Lubbock is also the closest large city in the area.

Also, I agree that it is a part of Dyess AFB. However, Dyess is farther south and east towards Abilene, and not close to the missile site. I only posted this because I found it odd and had never seen a site like this so out in the open before.

The thing is on Google Maps. I didn't give any intel away, our own government did! And yes, Google is our government. Just look how many secret meetings O'Gotcha has had with high-ranking Google execs. He takes them more seriously than he does his own security briefings.

Looks like a training site to me. NOBODY leaves hot guided missiles or unguided rockets unmanned. Reminds me of a communications site similar to those I worked on while in the US Army. We had a comm. site like this in the desert near Douglas, AZ when I was assigned to the 11th Signal Brigade at Ft. Huachuca (now hq'd at Ft. Hood). It was to provide more realistic training. The double fence is also typical, although the one around our camp in KSA during Desert Shield/Storm was of standard double cyclone, about 6' apart, filled with multiple coils of concertina wire. Also - in the Google Maps satellite image, 2 tall wooden poles of the type typically used for an HF transmitter installation (end fed?). You usually use the HF to talk to the distant end while setting up the satcom link.

Looks like "missile battery" is outside of perimeter fence.

I looked at Google Maps satellite images of the area in question but couldn't see anything. Of course, those images could be 4-5 years old and who knows when this facility went up.

It looks pretty temporary, really. It wouldn't take much to throw up the fencing.
