The Redland Company, Inc. (“Redland”) is proud to assist with the transportation of the Nike missile from Baker Aviation School near Miami International Airport to the missile’s new home at the historic Nike missile site located inside Everglades National Park.

Redland recently transported the iconic F-4 Phantom Jet located near US-1 and Campbell Drive to Homestead Air Reserve Base for refurbishment.  Afterword, news spread that Redland was willing to assist with similar community projects and the Everglades Association contacted Redland about moving the Nike missile.

Redland’s lowboy tractor trailer arrived at Baker Aviation School one day early so that the Nike missile could be loaded and secured onto the trailer.  With the help of police escorts the missile is planned to travel today from Baker Aviation School near MIA along a pre-planned route to the Nike site at Everglades National Park.

“Redland is grateful to be a part of yet another community project where we are able to provide our equipment resources for the benefit of Park visitors who will enjoy this historic viewing.”, said Chad Munz, VP Construction, at Redland.

Redland employees involved with transport include Ramon Padin, Lowboy Driver and Tito Mena, Trucking Foreman.

The Redland Company, Inc. is a family owned contracting business headquartered in Homestead, FL and provides construction services for site development, transportation, and utility projects.  More info is available at
