Thanks, Steel Penguin!

Narses2, there's plenty of stuff from around the world on the map, so hopefully it's useful elsewhere, too.  Living in the U.S., I will admit to focusing some of my effort there, but I'm gathering sources and trying to enter stuff everywhere.

There is a Thunderbird missile at the gate to the former RAF Westcott, located on the A41 between Aylesbury and Bicester. Westcott was home to the Rocket Propulsion Establishment and the Thunderbird booster rockets were developed there.
The remains of the rocket testing sites is fascinating and involves a lot of concrete!
