Latest in series of military test launches

There could be a rocket launch from the Central Coast Wednesday.

The Air Force announced plans for a Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missile test launch from Vandenberg Air Force Base.

The launch window is 12:15 to 6:15 Wednesday morning.

If it takes place, it will be the latest in an ongoing series of test launches from the base to check the readiness of equipment, and launch crews. A spy satellite was successfully launched into orbit from Vandenberg last week.
