China Lake NAWS, California
The 1988 China Lake Naval Weapons Center airshow.
On June 24 and June 25, I was treated to a tour of China Lake Naval Air Weapons Station by Captain Jim Seaman, the Military Deputy Commander for Pacific Ranges.
China Lake NAWS is home to a variety of vintage aircraft. The U.S. Naval Museum of Armament & Technology has assembled a very interesting collection with some types not found elsewhere. The Weapons Survivability Laboratory (WSL) evaluates the damage done to airframes by different types of weapons.
The Explosive Ordnance Disposal team set up a demonstration of several types of explosives, including an anti-car-bomb blast.
China Lake NAWS is home to the U.S. Naval Museum of Armament & Technology. It houses an extensive collection of missiles and weapons delivery systems.
