Great site. I was always looking for information on the New Britain niki site as a kid playing hanging out in the remains. Keep the info coming as it helps us younger guys understand what our parents had for challenges in life. Ronnnie

Hi Michael B.
The old images on the site were submitted by a guy who was stationed at the E. Windsor IFC on Scantic Rd in 61/62. If you compare them to the most recent images I took in 2010 you can see they are of the same location (identical farmhouse and barns in the background).

I served three years at East Windsor site. 1962-1965. I looked at the pictures on this web site of East Windsor.I don't know where those pictures came from. I arrived in Sept of 1962. They are not the correct photos for the East Windsor site.

I did Navy Nuclear Prototype training at Knolls in 1979. Grew up in Simsbury and knew about the Nike site. I worked as an electrician building the last phase of the condos now on that site.

John, great site. As a former Air Force Titan II ICBM launch crew commander from 1969 to 1972 it is really good to see this information being put on the web. Standing nuclear alerts 24/7 was a lot of ideal time but the mission was always first in your thoughts.
