Yesterday was the 47th anniversary of my Company Service Date and yesterday saw K-311-1, the last unit to operate in the original K-25 gaseous diffusion process building, fall.

Today there is only a mud flat where the mile-long building stood.

The DOE-Oak Ridge Flickr stream documents the work in this 'Recent News' set.

And here is a view I made from a flyover on a Sunday afternoon in 1978.
