Abstract:
Eight concrete towers were built on Topsail Island in the 1940s as part of Operation Bumblebee. The operation’s goal was to test the ramjet engine in a more isolated area so they could measure the flight path. From the towers, the rocket’s performance was measured. The towers are still present on the island with some having been turned in vacation homes and others left vacant since the 1940s.
