Salt Lake City to Boise Beacon 25

These photos were submitted by Glen Smallwood in March 2015. They show the current status of Salt Lake City to Boise Beacon 25 (NGS PID OZ1042).

BCN 25 at the entrance to the Mountain Home Municipal Airport. The tower appears to match the tower remnants and BCN 26 & BCN 27, however it appears that the majority of the arrow was removed when the entrance was constructed. The original pad appears to be buried under several inches of landscape rock.

Seems to dimensionally match the other towers.

The only marker on the tower we could find.

According to the NGS datasheet, this was located by sighting the light for the center of the tower.

  1. Hi! Are you still interested in the beacon system in Idaho? I’m trying to put together a project for the Idaho Historical Society on the system–working with the Idaho Air Association and others. It would be great to get more people on board. Where are you located? My email address is kengelm@yahoo.com.
