Minuteman III Launch Scheduled
updated: Dec 16, 2013, 12:16 PM

Source: Launch Alert

An operational test launch of an unarmed Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missile is scheduled for Tuesday between 1:39 and 7:39 a.m. from Launch Facility- 04 here on north Vandenberg.

Col. Brent McArthur, 30th Space Wing vice commander, is the launch decision authority.

"This is our last launch for 2013," said McArthur. "We've had 11 successful launches this year and 2014's schedule looks to be just as busy. Working with AFGSC, the 30th Space Wing stands ready to ensure a safe, secure and effective ICBM test."
