US ICBM Minuteman III attack on the Western Pacific.

Finding launch footage of Minuteman III ICBMs is easy. Finding Re-entry Vehicle footage is a bit harder.

I knew P-3s observed the reentry, but I didn’t know they were specially configured.

  1. Now there’s an inducement for accuracy, with the team drinking as many yards as the target error.

  2. The AF calls these launches “Glory Trips”. They are done periodically (as the video states) to insure readiness. I’m surprised to re reentry footage. All reentry info use to be considered FRD.
