In preparation for an unarmed Minuteman III missile launch, 1st Lt. Kimberly Erskine, Missile Combat Crew commander at Malmstrom Air Force Base, practices procedures March 19, 2015, at Vandenberg AFB, California, in preparation for the launch of an unarmed Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missile. Both F. E. Warren and Malmstrom AFB personnel actively worked with the 30th Space Wing and the 576th Flight Test Squadron to perform two test launches in less than a week, providing a cradle-to-grave evaluation of the system, which started at the missile wings and ended more than 6,000 miles away at a test range near Guam.
