-Montauk Air Force Station-

LINK TO THE FULL ALBUM : https://www.flickr.../with/30420827357/

Montauk was always considered a prime location for a possible invasion because of its remoteness and prime location midway between two major American cities. In December 1960 the large, high-power AN/FPS-35 radar became operational at Montauk. The reflector was 126 feet (38 m) long and 38 feet (12 m) tall, weighing 40 tons, and was supposedly only the second ever built. It was able to detect airborne objects at distances of well over 200 miles (320 km). The AN/FPS-35 was so powerful that it disrupted local TV and radio broadcasts, and had to be shut down several times and re-calibrated.The Montauk installation was shut down on January 31, 1981. Considering its size, removing the huge antenna was problematic at best so it was "abandoned in place", with its controlling motors and electronics removed, allowing it to move with the wind to prevent it being torn off its base in a storm.

Where are the interior shots?

Getting inside has been at best, difficult for the last 20 some years. They even sealed up the tunnel system.




Two of the most famous products of Berkeley are LSD and Unix. I don’t think that this is a coincidence.

Yeah i do have some shots of the interior, unfortunately it's pretty damn trashed, empty and full of graffitis, so i didn't really liked the pictures to be honest. When i arrived at the radar tower it was around 3AM and there was a hole in the wall, we got inside and slept there for few hours, probably the worst night ever because it was too cold even with the sleeping bags and blankets lol... This exploration dates from last year however.

Everyone has a dark side, mines just a little more illuminated.

I went inside. Here are some pics. https://flic.kr/s/aHsmgNMp5b

No chair to be found. That was most likely a conspiracy.
