A genuine F-15 blueprint from Fort MacArthur


Here’s a little golden nugget of United States military history. A couple years ago we were taking a rare underground tour of the batteries at Fort MacArthur near the Port of Los Angeles. One of said batteries, Battery 241, resides beneath what is now the Korean Bell of Friendship. The battery is completely dark, coated with six decades of dust, dead cat bones, and mechanical debris, requiring flashlights and heavy shoes. We were lucky to find this relic face down in a forgotten dusty corner. A print-out of an F-15 fighter jet.

Way cool.
