The original Manzano underground nuclear storage facility, located in the northeastern portion of Kirtland Air Force Base, Albuquerque, New Mexico, began its construction in 1947, the very same year that the Sandia Laboratories were established.
It was also a coincidence that the Air Force was established in 1947, together with the CIA and NSA.
The best panoramic view of this entire complex is from Mesa Del Sol, not too far from Albuquerque's Sunport. Direction....go south on I-25, exit at Rio Bravo, make a left. Go right on University all the way to Mesa Del Sol. Park your vehicle in the back of the Glass Building. Walk eastward for about 200 feet. You will already have a great panoramic view of the whole Manzano/Sandia Base.
