D-26 BELLE ISLE
With 4 missile silos on the north tip of the island and a small barracks located where there is now a parking lot, the Belle Isle Nike Missile base was the only one located within the city of Detroit. A short distance across the river and just north of Belle Isle is A.B. Ford Park where the transmitting and receiving radar arrays where installed. The platforms for the radars still stand today although nothing remains of the missile silos on Belle Isle.
