These photos are a few weeks old now but it was the first time I had gotten out to shoot in a month. I had seen photos of this place last year but no one was sure if it had been demolished or not. When I saw some new sets pop up I knew it was time we got out here. This place is a government facility that tested jet engines. It was built in the 1950s and operated until some time in the '90s.
12. Apparently this was used for cooling. From what I read it has seeped into fractured rock and polluted the land...
27. HUGE testing cell that could only be opened with massive hydraulics. I'm guessing this was the large engines that might go boom...
29. Serious door...
33. Goal post...
37. This place had almost nothing left behind that would tell you what it was or who it was ran by. Except when we turned one corner and found a massive pile of all these blueprints just dumped out on the floor...
After we got back to the car we put our things inside and then drove around to the front of this place to take some exteriors. We were on a public sidewalk or even across the street in some instances. We saw a cop drive by and right after he passed us he pulled a u-turn. I walked across the street at this point but he rolled right up to the other 3 guys and warned them that they were not allowed to take photos of the place because it was a government facility. If only he knew.
