Air Force Test-Launches Minuteman Missile From California

The Associated Press reports that “the U.S. Air Force says an unarmed Minuteman 3 missile has been launched from California’s central coast in the latest test of the intercontinental system.”  

“The missile blasted off at 11:34 p.m. PST from Vandenberg Air Force Base northwest of Los Angeles.”  

“‘There was a slight delay due to some instruments downrange but it went within the launch window,’ said Carla Pampe, chief of civic outreach for Air Force Global Strike Command.”
