Operation Teapot – Turk 1955 – I Remembered – Finally . . .

After looking half the night – I finally starting searching “shot” names – about the same time I thought maybe “Teapot” was it I searched and found it -sit back and enjoy the info overload . . .

I fixed the links – they all open in separate windows . . .

Operation Teapot was a series of fourteen nuclear test explosions conducted at the Nevada Test Site in the first half of 1955. It was preceded by Operation Castle, and followed by Operation Wigwam. Wigwam was, administratively, a part of Teapot, but it is usually treated as a class of its own. The aims of the operation were to establish military tactics for ground forces on a nuclear battlefield and to improve the nuclear weapons used for strategic delivery.

And a few still pics . . .

You can see the tower and cab through the window – the light is a reflection from inside lighting for photographic purposes . . .
