V2 Calibration Stand

      The V-2 Calibration Stand being readied to perform calibration on the V-2 Fuel system.  You can see the section of the V-2 with the fuel tanks mounted in the tower.  The engine is approximately at the first level of the tower with the person standing on it.  You can see the two large pipes which will carry the water pumped through the system into a large holding tank coming from the bottom of the engine and going to the right.  In the foreground is another V-2 engine being inspected. 

      Note the small blockhouse in the background beyond the stairs.  This blockhouse is all that currently remains of the V-2 Calibration stand, except visible places on the concrete pad where the tower and other equipment was mounted.  This stand was located just inside what is now called the Tech Area, just south of the Fire Station.  The little Blockhouse is located on the right shortly after entering the gate.

      Also note the scales at the very left of the photo, which was used to weigh the fuel for the Turbine Pump.
