Cold Calibration Test Stand, Post-Demolition

Marshall Space Flight Center's Cold Calibration Test Stand underwent demolition sometime between July 2012 and August 2013. All of the steel superstructure of the stand was removed, leaving only small, two-story building.

An H-1 rocket engine turbopump and an F-1 rocket engine turbopump had still been installed in the test stand, left after their last tests, were removed from the test stand, and were left on-premises. As of early September 2013, the F-1 turbopump was stil located near the former location of Cold Cal, and the H-1 turbopump was located behind Building 4205.

On August 29, 2013, a MSFC engineer sent me this photo of the general area of the former location of Cold Cal. The remains of the test stand consist of the rusty, white building just left of center and the F-1 turbopump is in front of the two rusty, spherical tanks right of center. Note the Static Test Tower rising above the foreground buildings at center.
