VANDENBERG AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. -- An unarmed Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missile was launched during an operational test at 3:01 a.m. here Sunday from Launch Facility-10 on north Vandenberg. Col. Keith Balts, 30th Space Wing commander, was the launch decision authority. "Our mission partners in the 576th Flight Test Squadron have a big footprint here at Vandenberg," said Balts. "We support several of their test launches each year as they help keep our Nation's critical system ready to support national security."
