WHITEMAN AIR FORCE BASE, Mo. -- An example of a Minuteman II launch control facility. Launch control facility sites like this one were designed to function even after the initial exchanges of a nuclear war. Self-contained, the underground portion housed batteries, a power generator, telephone switches for the underground cable system, and air regeneration equipment. Redundancies in the system meant that even a damaged LCF would likely have the minimal capability to perform its mission. The facility was manned by 10 people. Two individuals were the crews downstairs. The remaining eight included the facility manager who was usually the ranking enlisted person on site. The next ranking individual was the flight security controller who insured the security of the site and acted as a liaison with the crews downstairs. (U.S. Air Force photo)
