The World’s 18 Strangest Military Bases

Popularmechanics.com tracked down some of the most interesting active military facilities and spoke with Brad Schulz, vice president of federal architecture at HNTB, about why they’re notable. While all are unique, these following facilities stood out from the rest:

Nellis Air Force Base – Nellis featured North America’s largest solar power plant at the time (2007). More than 6 million solar cells are laced throughout 72,000 panels, feeding the base about 30 million kilowatt-hours of clean energy each year.

Cheyenne Mountain Complex – Located nearly a half mile under a granite mountain, the base is protected by 25-ton blast doors, and some rooms sit on massive beds of springs to better absorb megaton blasts.

Churchill has short-term corporate housing nationwide. Give us a call at 866-255-0593 for more info about temporary housing.
