Lockheed Shopping Center, Midwest City, OK

The neon on this one is busted all to pieces, but it one of the largest remaining boomerang arrows that I have seen. Midwest City is the home of Tinker AFB, explaining the name Lockheed for the shopping center. Note the revolving red light on the right-most support post. They are currently updating the center and I fear that this sign will be torn down and replaced. It is on SE 15th east of Air Depot Blvd.

UPDATED 11/02/08: I’ve added a closeup of the other side of the sign.

    Rather a lot of the streets in the Original Square Mile of Midwest City (15th to 29th, Air Depot to Midwest Blvd.) are named for either aircraft manufacturers or flying aces (Lockheed, Boeing, Rickenbacker, Douglas, Northrup). Know Thy Market, indeed.
