I guess if there really were any US targets during the Cold War, Wichita was one. That's where I lived. Boeing, Beech, Cessna and McConnell AFB are located there. (LearJet came later and Stearman maintains a large parts warehouse there. Wichita was surrounded by missile silos (18, if I remember correctly) so gov't officials took it pretty serious. My father worked at Boeing and all they made or modified at that time was B-52s. I later worked at the Military Aircraft Division of Cessna. I had to get a security clearance because a lot of the work was classified.

That was a looooong time ago.
