With your help, we've been able to make the necessary upgrades to our server to keep the site running more smoothly than ever!

The meager ad revenue generated by this site isn't sufficient to cover the annual cost of running the server, and we who manage it have never made money from it.

In an effort to continue serving the needs of aviation enthusiasts around the world, we continue to ask for donations to keep this site up and running.

Boeing CIM-10 Bomarc in Roberto Carlos em Ritmo de Aventura.

The Boeing CIM-10 Bomarc (IM-99 Weapon System prior to September 1962) was a supersonic interceptor for Cold War air defense of North America which, in addition to being the first long-range anti-aircraft missile (cf. proposed WIZARD predecessor), was the only SAM deployed by the United States Air Force.

Stored horizontally in a launcher shelter with movable roof, the aircraft was erected to fire vertically using rocket boosters and then was ramjet-powered during midcourse command guidance to a dive point. During the "homing dive", the missile's onboard AN/DPN-34 radar allowed the BOMARC to guide itself to the target (e.g., enemy bomber or formation) and a radar proximity fuze detonated the warhead (conventional or 10 kiloton nuclear W-40). After the May 17, 1957, $7 million initial contract for operational aircraft; the "Interceptor Missile" was deployed at launch areas in Canada and the United States (e.g., the 1960 Fort Dix IM-99 accident contaminated a launch area.) Boeing indicated: "Differences in the Langley Base layout are due to planning for accommodation of the advanced missile system [(IM-99B) ground equipment with equipment for] the IM-99A system". Launches were from Florida test range sites (AFMTC & Eglin's Santa Rosa Island) and controlled by AN/GPA-35 and/or AN/FSQ-7 computers, e.g., the Montgomery SAGE Center commanded three BOMARCs simultaneously in-flight during a May 1960 test. BOMARC launches as target drones began at Vandenberg Air Force Base on 25 August 1966 (the 1st Vandenberg BOMARC launch was 14 October 1964).

This page lists all films, TV series, and video games that feature the Boeing CIM-10 Bomarc.
