MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A Minot Area Chamber of Commerce committee is raising funds to place a one-fourth scale Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missile model at Minot Air Force Base.

The Minot Daily News reports (https://bit.ly/1OqgCb7 ) that the chamber’s Military Affairs Committee has started a community drive to raise $25,000.

Chamber officials say the committee is extremely proud of the ICBM mission and would like to make it more visible to all the base military personnel, families and visitors.

The model would be located at a main intersection on Minot AFB across the street from the existing B-52 bomber model.

The missile would be 14 feet tall and on an 8-foot-tall stand, for a total 22 feet in height. The base will be responsible for lighting, decorative brick work and a concrete foundation.
