Complex 18 blockhouse Pad B control area
Complex 18 blockhouse Pad B control area Zoom

We are standing in the back of the Pad B control area, which was used for Pad B launches (Blue Scout I and II, and Thor). The two windows we see in the center of the picture looked out onto Pads A (the left window) and B (the right) through mirrors. The group of four windows on the right would look out onto Pad B if the area outside the blockhouse were not filled in with soil (that happened circa 1959).
