Missile Successfully Test Launched From Central Coast
An unarmed intercontinental ballistic missile has been successfully test launched from the Central Coast.
The Air Force test launched a Minuteman III missile from Vandenberg Air Force Base early Wednesday morning.
It took off at 12:02 a.m., at the very beginning of the six hour window for the takeoff. It's the latest in a series of ongoing test flights from the base to test crew and equipment readiness. The missile flew to a test range in the South Pacific.
It's the second Minuteman test flight from the base in less than a month.
