Build Your Future in a Prime Weapons System Project….

The SM-64 Navaho Intercontinental Guided Missile

North American Aviation has prime weapons system responsibility for the SM-64 NAVAHO. This missile program is one of our country’s largest, most important armament projects … a vital part of future defense planning . . . offering you long-term security, plus the opportunity to enrich your experience and capabilities in many advanced scientific and technical fields.

North American is actively engaged in all phases of research, design, development and manufacture of missile airframes and the operational testing of complete missile units. For instance, more than 100 separate projects make-up the NAVAHO effort. Your special training and abilities can be vital to the success of one or more of these intellectually-demanding projects.

    The Navajo was an early US Air Force cruise missile passed over in favor of ICBMs http://www.designation-…

    We wound up going to cruise missiles anyway after all.

    The Downey facility is no more. Boeing sold it after buying NAA from Rockwell. Meanwhile, the B-1B sustaining program moved to the former Douglas plant in Long Beach, which is just down Lakewood Blvd, from the Downey facility.

    It will be interesting to speculate what Boeing will do with the Long Beach property after C-17 production completes.

    Here’s one that was restored with an explanation of its concept (rocket take-off, ramjet engines, guided targeting)

    StanFlouride: Actually they used a photo of an X-10 for their article for some reason. This is what the restored Navaho looks like http://www.fas.org/nuke…

    Thanks FB & SF.

    It looks very Thunderbirdish.

    Even though the project was cancelled it provided research data
    applicable to other projects.
