Cold War Infrastructure for Strategic Air Command (SAC): The Bomber Mission – Hangars, Command Posts, Major Commands, B-36, B-47, and B-52, Sixteen Air Force Bases from Barksdale to Whiteman


This is a fascinating survey and detailed history of Strategic Air Command (SAC) bomber mission properties addressing the history of flightline real property supporting these missions from 1947 to 1991, with an emphasis on buildings and structures of the 1947 to 1963 period. During the more than half-century that unfolded between the closing months of World War II and winding down of the Cold War in 1989-1991, the U.S. War Department evolved into the Department of Defense as it is now understood, with its primary supporting arms of the Army, Navy, Marines, and Air Force, and its reserve forces of the Army, Air Force, and Air National Guards. American military infrastructure is predominantly a phenomenon of the 1939-to-present period, thus precisely paralleling the modern movement in Western European and U.S. architecture and engineering. The years bracketed by 1945 and 1991 also mirror a particular world condition with regards to the development of nuclear weapons. During these decades knowledge within the scientific community emerged exponentially, yet was closely held by the two competing super powers of the U.S. and the Soviet Union into the 1980s. Coupled with strides in physics and mathematics accompanying the shifts from atomic to thermonuclear weaponry, were significant gains in computer capabilities, electronics, and the conquest of near- and far-space-all of which directly supported military activities such as higher order aircraft, radar surveillance, command and control, satellite monitoring, long-range missiles, smart weapons systems, unmanned devices, and general intelligence.
