Item 8278 - Launch Complex 36B Atlas Liquid Oxygen First Stage Tanking Cabinet Catalog 511 (Oct 2017)

Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Estimate: $1,000.00 +
Sold Price: $1,225.00 (includes buyer's premium)


Liquid Oxygen First Stage Tanking Cabinet from Launch Complex 36B, which was first installed in 1962 and removed August 2005, used for a total of 76 Atlas/Centaur launches during its years of service. The unit measures an overall 24 x 60 x 26 and weighs 200-300 pounds, and has a tag at the top reading "U2016." This is the original cabinet that was installed in 1962, with some indicator modifications in later years to include digital readouts. It features a pullout work drawer with lift-top surface for storage below. The power supply (which would weigh over 100 pounds by itself) was removed, and likely reused, as was the headset/communication panel which would have been just above the drawer. The cabinet could be wired up so that the lights and switches function for display purposes. In fine condition. Accompanied by an original color 10 x 8 NASA press photo from 1986 showing the inside of the blockhouse at Complex 36 for the Atlas/Centaur-66 launch, a 1992 USAF photo of an Atlas rocket at Complex 36B, and five other original photos of either Atlas/Centaur launches or the interior of the Launch Complex blockhouse, as well as a 2001 Lockheed Martin procedural booklet entitled "Complex 36B Tankwatch Instructions." From the collection of aerospace memorabilia specialist Ken Havekotte. The prolific Atlas-Centaur expendable launch system was in use from 1962 to 2004, a remarkable length of time for any piece of technology. Due to the size and/or weight of this item, this piece will need to be crated and shipped by a third party freight company.  Please contact Bobby Eaton at RR Auction for additional information.
