Radar Museum Planned for Campbell Hill Summit


The Air Force Radar Museum Association has got permission to build the National Air Defense Radar Museum atop one of the former radar buildings atop Campbell Hill. The radars in Bellefontaine were part of the 664th Aircraft Control and Warning Squadron. The museum is to be located in a building that house an FPS-26 radar. Gene McManus attended the Highpointers 2011 convention at Campbell Hill and describes plans in the video.

*You Might be a Gung Ho Military Base Researcher If…These radar folks are pretty obsessive listmakers. Highpointers will find a lot commonality in this list.
