He Found An Abandoned Metal Shack On A Military Base... You'll Never Believe What He Saw Inside

May 19, 2014

Reddit user Sniper98g found a small abandoned shack about the size of a phone booth on an unused corner of a military base. He took a peak inside to find this ladder heading down...

When he got down the ladder, there was a small platform.

That lead to a staircase.

And it went down...

Quite a ways...

At the bottom there was this massive door.

Surprisingly it opened up fairly easily. Inside was a metal shack.

Here is a view from inside the door looking back toward the stairs.

You had to cross a little bridge to get on to the main platform.

Because the whole thing is suspended from huge shock isolators.

Here is a better shot of the shock isolator.

This seems to be the whole reason this thing was built. Very old electronics, perhaps communication equipment.

Behind the shack was a fuel tank.

And another ladder...

It looked somewhat safe.

So he went down to the bottom.

The underside had a bunch of old air handling equipment.

And it was connected to the outside by flexible ducts.

Some of the stuff was in bad shape. It was obvious it had not been maintained in a long time.

The bottom of this place had started to fill with water.

According to Sniper98g, "I thought about grabbing the flashlight, but figured there were probably a bunch of canibalistic humanoid underground dwellers waiting to grab me."

I don't blame him.

Odds are this is a bunker built during the Cold War to withstand a nuclear blast, with a communication system to connect to the outside world. Nuclear bombs could create tremendous amounts of instantaneous earth movement, which is where the huge shocks come in to play. That is also why the air intake uses flexible tubing. It's not in the isolated area covered by the shocks, so the tubing needs to be able to fluctuate if the ground moves.

Sniper98g did not want to disclose any location information. Either way, this is a really awesome discovery.
