The Installations
NIKE: Anchorage Nike Site Bay
USAF: Anchorage Nike Site Bay
This Nike site, at Goose Bay, Alaska, was used from about 1959 to 30 Jul 1979. The land was acquired by the Air Force (withdrawn from Bureau of Land Management) on 16 Oct 1956. It was transferred to the Army on 8 Oct 1957. U.S. Army Corps of Engineers documents indicate the control area is a correctional center owned by the state of Alaska; the launcher site has remained abandoned since it transferred to the University of Alaska.
