Standing in the middle of an old and abandoned limestone quarry in Madison, in the US state of Alabama, is a 53-foot-tall nuclear missile. The 1962 “Minuteman” missile used to be on display at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center’s Museum, but because the educational exhibits are updated regularly, it was moved to a warehouse.

In 1995, when the old limestone quarry was turned into a diving park, the owners acquired the non-functional Cold War relic and erected it in the middle of the lack. They also acquired a F-4 Phantom jet, a titan missile nose cone, a pickup truck, a fire truck, and more, and sunk them in the water-filled quarry for divers to explore.

However, it appears that the missile is no longer there.
