Launch vehicle Minotaur II +, created by order of the US Air Force, exploded on tests

Conducted in the interests of the Pentagon in California, tests of the Minotaur II + launch vehicle ended in an explosion a few seconds after launch. This was reported by the press service of the US Air Force base.

“The Minotaur II+ rocket exploded about 11 seconds after launch. As a result of the explosion, no one was injured, debris fell in the immediate vicinity of the launch pad., the official statement says. It is noted that a special commission has already been formed to investigate the incident.

The Minotaur II+ tests are designed to help develop the LGM-35A Sentinel intercontinental ballistic missile, which should eventually replace the Minuteman-type ballistic missile.
