RANTOUL, Ill. (WCIA) — The missile on the former Chanute Air Force Base will be dismantled.

Village leaders say it’s in bad condition. After recent inspections, they found corrosion and animal nests.

They say, at this point, it cannot be salvaged.

The contractor says it could be a few weeks before it’s taken apart. They’re still waiting on an official date.
