Texas Tower 5 was a planned Texas Tower that was to be located on Brown's Bank, 35 nautical miles (65 km; 40 mi) south of the coast of Nova Scotia in 84 feet (26 m) of water.[1] The 4604th Support Group was supposed to be located at Pease Air Force Base, New Hampshire. The United States Air Force approved the construction of Tower #5 on January 11, 1954, but the tower was never built because of improvements to radar over the area.
