Complex 18 blockhouse Pad A control area
Complex 18 blockhouse Pad A control area Zoom

We are standing just inside the Pad A control area. Just in front of us (hanging from the ceiling) is a cable tray. The four windows ahead looked directly onto Pad A (they are now overgrown). The single window to the right of the four looked out on Pad A through the use of a mirror system (the window to its right was for Pad B).

This control area was filled with personnel and equipment back when Complex 18 was active. Directly in front of the window would have been the first stage console. On the other side of the wall to our right is a mirror-image of this area that was used for Pad B.
