last group of photos are more montages which give a better overall
picture when combined. I cannot stress strongly enough how
much the size of these images has been reduced by shoe-horning them
into this web page and so once again I urge you to save these photos
and view them outside of the site so you can better see the details.

may recall that earlier in the silo section I hinted at seeing the
very bottom of the missile silo, well this last photo is exactly
that. This is the ONLY picture I have, for which thanks must go
out to Fred Epler for providing it. I think I may have seen
one other photo of this area, but I do not have any more
pictures of the bottom of the silo. I hope you find it
interesting though it does not show much.
construction photo of the bottom of the silo: A small staircase
provided access to a steel grating platform. There was little to
be seen here under the cribwork save for some electrical conduit, supply
and return air ductwork and some access panels in the grating.
Beneath the grating there was about 6 feet of space to the concrete
floor of the silo. There was a sump well and pump to remove any
water and perhaps a few work lights. This is the deepest and most
remote area of the Titan I complex, literally 15 stories underground!
we have completed our look at the Titan I missile silo. Please
