Demolition time


Today is the planned demolition of the F-1 engine test stand at Marshall Space Flight Center.

The demolition company will leave the foundation intact in case there is a future need for it, but the rest of it is coming down.

Don’t be upset that this is going away. This test stand has not been used since 1969 because there is a nearby larger test stand designed for multiple engine testing. Also, most of the engine testing has been moved to Stennis Space Center in Mississippi. It was time to either spend a lot of money that we don’t have on maintenance or tear it down.

I’ll update with the video when it’s available.
