33140 HD Missile Accidents and Failures at Vandenburg AFB

This rare film shows a series of missile launches and failures at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. Among the ICBMs featured are the Atlas, Titan and Minuteman. Vandenberg is a Department of Defense space and missile testing base, with a mission of placing satellites into polar orbit from the West Coast, using expendable boosters. ICBM testing at Vandenberg commenced in 1958 with the IRBM Thor, and rapidly progressed. During the period 1958 to 1963, Thor, Atlas, Titan I, Titan II and Minuteman ballistic missiles were launched from Vandenberg. ICBM testing at the site effectively ended with the LGM-118 Peacekeeper, which last flew out of Vandy in July of 2004.
