Operator: USA. Country: USA. Latitude: 32.5 N. Longitude: 106.2 W. Altitude: 1,200.0 m. Minimum Inclination: 32.0 degrees. Maximum Inclination: 90.0 degrees. Comments: Site of V-2 tests after war. Considered as a shuttle launch site (altitude would have provided payload advantage). Emergency shuttle landing here proved that fine silicate dust would be a problem.
