So what was LA96C? LA96C was one of 16 missile control sites established around Los Angeles during the Cold War. The site was abandoned in 1968 and sold to the city of Los Angeles in 1995. LA96c is now the San Vicente Mountain Park.
At 1,950 feet, LA96C occupies one of the highest points in the city. On a clear day you can see from Downtown LA out to the ocean.
Directions: From the San Fernando Valley, the park is accessible from San Vicente Mountain Park. From the 405 freeway, take Mulholland Drive west 2.7 miles. A ten minute walk on a fire road will bring you to the trail and park entrance.
Address: 17500 Mulholland Drive, Encino

Have you ever driven by something and wonder what or why is that? The Commemorative Air Force So Cal Wing, in Camarillo California, is the why and what of this post. Driving along the 101 you can see a few old World War 2 aircraft and that is a small portion of what is to see.
The Museum has 2 aircraft hangers one being the operating display area and the second is a maintenance and repair/restoration section, in addition to the aircraft that I had why and what for so many years.
