TM-76 Mace – Robins AFB

April 2, 2013

We’ve received a couple queries about the CGM-13 Mace that used to be displayed adjacent to I-75 near Warner Robins AFB, Georgia.  Bob Wildrick investigated and learned that it has been moved to the military equipment boneyard in Tucson, Arizona.

Our thanks to Bob for the update!

Russ …..Check out the link below, received from one of my aviation enthusiast friends. You’ll note that among numerous other airplanes and missiles being “downsized” (scrapped), the Robins AFB Museum of Aviation’s MGM-13 (Mace A) is on the chopping block.

Perhaps the Missileers leadership can mount a save-the-missile campaign like the Mace B down in Florida, now in Indiana; but please let them know about it. (I don’t have their email addresses handy.)

At least it’s not as big as the B-52D that is going to be cut up. I have a good friend in Warner Robins who is likely sick about that: he flew THAT airplane over Hanoi during Linebacker II……

Russ,

Just got off the phone with Ken Emery director of the Robins museum. The Mace that was on the pole out by I 75 where you got off to go into Warner Robins has been taken to the bone yard in AZ. The Matador and Mace at the museum have recently been repainted and are being kept. He had no idea what the AF is going to do with the Mace that is now in AZ.
