Complex 13 aerial view
Complex 13 aerial view Zoom

Here is an aerial view from the north end of Complex 13. Clearly visible on opposite sides of the MST are the channel support rails and the launch stand. Far to the right of the MST is the LOX storage and transfer facility. At the extreme left is a temporary quonset for storage.

Immediately above the MST is what remains of the launch pad at Complex 12. To the right of the pad, Complex 12's blockhouse is visible. Complex 12 is best known for its support of space science missions, namely all nine of the RANGER missions and four of the ten MARINER missions, between 1961 and 1967.

In the extreme upper part of the photo is a small portion of Complex 11. Complexes 11 and 12 both supported Atlas launches (all unmanned) from their activation in the late 1950's until their deactivation in 1967.
