Vandenberg AFB News Release
2011 April 14
 
VANDENBERG AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. - Team Vandenberg launched an Atlas
V from Space Launch Complex-3 here April 14 at 9:24 p.m. PDT.
 
It was the fourth Atlas V processed at Vandenberg and the 605th
overall Atlas mission in U.S. history.
 
"The wind cooperated with us this evening enabling us to launch
without compromising public safety," said Col. Richard Boltz, 30th
Space Wing commander. "Without a doubt, every launch is a major feat,
and I'm extremely proud of Team Vandenberg for yet another job well
done."
 
The rocket carried a national security payload for the National
Reconnaissance Office.
 
Vandenberg's next launch is a Delta II scheduled for June 9.
