As seen at the Internet web site CNet some images of abandoned military bases and sites. My commentary added.
"Eerie photos of abandoned military sites"
"Former atomic weapons site". Salton Sea.
"A bullet-riddled structure sits near an abandoned airstrip on the former Salton Sea Test Base, once an atomic weapons testing site in 2005 near Salton City, California."
"Salton Sea Test Base"
"Dummy Atomic Bombs - Drone Airplane Tests"
MISSION OF THE SALTON SEA BASE AN ATOMIC DIMENSION EXISTING IN TWO TIME-FRAMES. 1. WORLD WAR 2 AND THE COLD WAR.
A. World War Two.
"In 1944-45 a series of classified B-29 practice flights were made from Wendover, Utah to the Salton Sea. At the sea, the crew dropped dummy atomic bombs onto a floating white raft and other targets."
B-29 bomber flying from Utah to California and dropping a single bomb the dummy analog version of the first atomic weapon as used at Hiroshima. Practice.
B. Cold War.
"The Atomic Energy Commission and its contractor Sandia Corporation acquired the base from the Navy in 1946. It was renamed the Salton Sea Test Base and used as a highly sophisticated bombing range whose drops were scrutinized and perfected using equipment reportedly recovered from Germany after World War II. Apparently the bombing tests included delivery from diverse devices, even from space capsule parachutes. Drone planes and Nike missiles were also tested there."
SALTON SEA BASE BOMBS DROPPED WITHOUT LIVE ATOMIC WARHEADS! NO DETONATION!
