McDonnell ADM-20C "Quail"
Serving "on display" at K.I. Sawyer is tail number 61-0414
The ADM-20 Quail (GAM-72) was a decoy missile, intended to confuse enemy radar. It was designed to be similar to the B-52 Stratofortress in terms of radar return and flight characteristics; however, since its design in the mid-to-late 50's, radar's ability to discriminate between the Quail and an actual B-52 improved dramatically, to the point where radar operators were able to identify B-52s 21 out of 23 times.
The Quail was retired in 1978. At its peak in 1963 there were 492 Quails in service with SAC. In total 616 missiles were produced.
