Finley Air Force Station
Finley Air Force Station is an abandoned radar base outside Finley, North Dakota. Closed in 1979, the site now functions as a landfill. Similar to the Minot and Fortuna Air Force Stations, Finley AFS was a ground control intercept facility tasked with detecting and dispatching intercept aircraft in the event unidentified aircraft threatened to penetrate American air space.
