Former Nuclear Weapons Bunkers at Orlando International Airport

Many folks have always wondered why Orlando International Airport's three-letter code is MCO- it reflects the airport's previous history as McCoy AFB with was an active Strategic Air Command base until its closure in 1973 when it was taken over by the City of Orlando.
Home to SAC's B-52s, McCoy's weapons bunker complex was on the southwest side of the field and from what I have heard, is still in use today by Walt Disney World for the storage of their extensive stock of fireworks used in their many nightly shows.
