In an odd twist, one such decommissioned site in Davenport, Wash., might end up becoming the future home of the National UFO Reporting Center. For many years, the center's director, Peter Davenport, dreamed of relocating his organization in a missile site and even living there himself. He explored several decommissioned ICBM sites in Washington state until someone decided to sell one in 2005: Atlas E Missile Site 6. The site, shown in a 1960s image below, fell under the jurisdiction of Fairchild Air Force Base from 1961 to 1964. "It was the first underground ICBM... site in the U.S. arsenal, decommissioned in 1964," Davenport told The Huffington Post via email. [More at site... ] Listen to 'Strange Days...
