Picture of the Week

This is one of the original “Operation Bumblebee” towers built in the 1940’s. Operation Bumblebee was a top-secret military mission, that gave the U.S. its first strategic surface-to-air missiles. Additionally, Operation Bumblebee introduced new technology that helped produce the SR-71 Blackbird and the space shuttle. The remains of the project, eight towers, and the Assembly Building contribute to the rich history of Topsail Island.
