I use WIKI 2 every day and almost forgot how the original Wikipedia looks like.

Space Launch Complex 2 (SLC-2) is an inactive rocket launch site pending upgrades at Vandenberg Air Force Base, in California, USA. It consists of two launch pads. The East pad (SLC-2E) was used for Delta, Thor-Agena and Thorad launches between 1966 and 1972 and has been demolished.[1] The West pad (SLC-2W) was used for Delta, Thor-Agena and Delta II launches from 1966 until 2018, when the Delta II performed its last flight.[2][3]

SLC-2W is being repurposed to launch Firefly Alpha for Firefly Aerospace, with a first launch expected in early 2021.[4] On October 15, 2020, the Delta II mobile service tower suffered a fire during demolition.[5]

Space Launch Complex 2 was originally part of Launch Complex 75. The first launch out of the newly designated Space Launch Complex 2 was that of a Delta E with ESSA-3 on 2 October 1966 from SLC-2E.[6]

SLC-2E and SLC-2W are located approximately 2,000 feet (610 m) apart.[7]
