Abort Flight Test Launch Facility
« on: 11/16/2007 01:50 AM »
Apologies if this has been covered already, I couldn't find a relevant thread...

The Abort Flight Test Launch Facility at LC32, White Sands is to be used for PA-1 (Pad Abort 1). Groundbreaking has just begun!

According to my records, LC32 was used for Hera and Storm-2 missile defense target launches
from 1995-1998, and is located at roughly 32.4066 N    106.4067 W
Anybody have any more info on the history of this launch complex?
