Thread: Diving a Titan I missile complex

    Diving a Titan I missile complex

    A little while back the Maritime Documentation Society and DCS Films (from Seattle) was asked to come and film some dives in a Titan I missile complex. We put together a DocuMini of the trip.
    Enjoy!

    Yes it is legal to dive. Some are still government owned and those are definitely illegal, and guarded quite well. But there are a handful in the US that can be done. This one is owned by a gentleman named Gene Bruns, and well worth the visit.

    What are the usual run times on CCR, depths and water temps in Summer ??

    Well worth it indeed! We did about an hour in the first silo, and 45 in the second silo. The equipment rooms which all four levels can be explored, we quickly swam through. You can make your own dive times, that's what great. There are dive masters with you, but if they see that you are accomplished divers, they just let you go and do your thing. BUT, on the other hand, they were very excellent in keeping us on a time schedule because we had A LOT to see. We got there in the early morning and left after it was dark. It is easily a whole days excursion.
    Max depth in silo 1 was 108 ft in silo 2 just less than that, the equipment rooms I think were around 80 ft at the bottom floor.

    In winter when we went the temp was 47 degrees F. In the summer, I'd expect it not to get much warmer than that, since it has no contact with the sun, although the sun reflecting off the silo doors may make it a touch warmer in the silo-I don't know.
