Test Area 1-125 Observation Bunkers Description and Photos
Bldg. 8804 is an observation bunker associated with Test Stand 1-D. This is the only bunker that deviates from the standard plan. The deviation is that the sun shade is positioned 7 feet, 6 inches above grade rather than the standard 6 feet, 10 inches. This bunker is the northernmost bunker and sits at a lower elevation than the deck of the test stand. It faces southwest, toward the front of the test stand.
Bldg. 8814, the southemmost observation bunker for Test Stand 1-D, sits on the driveway leading to the test stand (CA-236-H-1 through CA-236-H-3). It faces northwest, toward the deck of the test stand.
Bldg. 8816, the northernmost observation bunker for Test Stand 1-C, sits west of Bldg. 8814 on the downward slope of the opposite side of the driveway. It faces southwest, toward the northern side of Test Stand 1-C.
Bldg. 8822 is the easternmost observation bunker for Test Stand 1-D. It sits above the test stand, facing the northeastern side and deck of the test stand.
Bldg. 8824 is the southernmost observation bunker for Test Stand 1-C. It sits at a slightly lower elevation than the deck of the test stand and is entered via a dirt road that winds along the hill below the water tanks. This bunker faces northeast, toward the front and south sides of the test stand.
