Complex 26, Pad A
Complex 26, Pad A Zoom

Even though the gantry and exhibits sit south of us at Pad B, Pad A is where Explorer I was launched from in 1958. The photo shows a Delta rocket (labeled a "Thor Able", but looking more like a Thor Able II) sitting in the center of Pad A. Surrounding the pad and extending south are exhibits at the Air Force Space & Missile Museum. To the right of the Delta is a military aircraft on final approach.
