Building N242 as it appeared on 22 June 2011

As was noted in an earlier post, "The Origin of The Titan 1 at NASA Ames", "The Titan I was brought to Ames in 1969, along with an Atlas missile, and they were among the last items tested in the Structural Dynamics Laboratory (N242).  The SDL was built to study buffeting during atmospheric ascent." After posting a requests for information about Titan 1 #61-4492 on the missile_talk group, Arthur LeBrun was kind enough to send along 3 high resolution photos of the Titan and the Atlas rockets being moved at building N242.
