GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) - Airmen from Malmstrom Air Force Base have conducted the second half of an operational test of the Minuteman III missile weapon system.

The simulated electronic launch-Minuteman is a test of all the steps leading up to the first stage ignition of a missile launch.

According to the Great Falls Tribune (https://tinyurl.com/pd2aooc ), the test squadron was cut off from the rest of the missile complex to prevent any actual launch of a missile.
