I live in Texarkana, Arkansas. I am doing research in an attempt to get the radar dome here preserved rather than it continuing to deteriorate. I was hoping to find out if there were domes in other places that were abandoned as this one has been. If so, where are they located?

Any information/documents/photos about the 703d and the Airmen who served here would also be appreciated. I will gladly welcome any help to get the property preserved.

Thanks to the good work done by Paul Mussolino (hope I spelled that right), we now have digital copies of most of the Texas Tower #4 documents that I gave to the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force a good many years ago. These are documents that Radomes bought on eBay a long time ago, and were originally done by one of the engineers who built the tower structure. It includes a post-mortem of the tower collapse, if memories serve me right.

I will be posting some online, on the Online Air Defense Radar Museum web site and Facebook pages along with the NADRM Facebook pages. Some I'll reprint to hard copy, trying to get the faded type fixed up a bit. and it will be available in the NADRM Library for public viewing.

I had previously been unable to get access to these and had been trying to get the NMUSAF to return them.

We owe a big debt of gratitude to Paul for his efforts. Bravo Zulu! Job well done!

Hi Gene !
We spoke on the phone about upgrading my annual membership to a Lifetime one, and I sent you the difference .

My brain did not realized that you are also one of those managing this Radomes Site.

I am not sure if I ever registered here, but I am with Lowell and on Cold Bay now, and I thought to add Radomes, since you have a lot of good Resources !!
Thanks !

UPDATE: This has been corrected

There is a problem with the "Maps" link for each radar site. We're working on it, stay tuned.

We had a user ask why a direct link to would not show any photos. It's worth explaining here:

We did a major architectural change several years ago, and unless you enter the online museum via the home page (, the required software isn't loaded that allows the display of images. The online museum is highly software driven, not HTML driven as it originally was. A direct link such as will no longer work. - Gene
