1963 the big freeze
#23
Looks like they have got the machine already, but the shovels have been issued to rescue the machine!
I remember that winter...I was in the Army in Germany and we were living in tents up on the Luneberg Heath. It was so cold we had to start the vehicles for 5 minutes every half hour through the night. it was a winter firing exercise for Honest John tactical nuclear tipped rockets (not with nuclear warheads fitted I hasten to add!) The rocket solid propellant temperature registered minus 18 Fahrenheit when we did a live firing one afternoon!
