  San Cristoral MREM Site #1:

San Cristoral MREM Site #1: Low-level photography was obtained of the San Cristobal MREM site #1 on October 23, 1962. Shown in this enlargement is a line of vehicles (oxidizer tank trailers). In addition, since October 14, fuel tank trailers, a missile shelter tent, and other equipment were introduced into the area. The missile erector now lies under canvas cover. Extensive vehicle trackage, coupled with construction of cable lines to control areas, highlights the tempo of Soviet activity.
