For over 25 years the Minuteman Missiles of Missouri provided the freedom and peace of the U.S. and its allies. That history is anchored in the concrete and steel at Whiteman Air Force Base inside of Oscar-01.
From 1964 to 1993, Whiteman AFB's Oscar-01 Missile Launch Control Facility served as command center for 10 Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles. It was one of 15 such facilities spread out across west central Missouri. Oscar-01 was also the only operational site actually located on a base. Today, the site is a tribute to all Air Force members who pulled alert duty and kept the system operational during the Cold War.
Reserve a tour at Oscar-01 and step back in time to the cold-war era to relive the success story of the dedicated men and women who made it all possible.
