Minuteman III launch early tomorrow morning

Vandenberg Air Force Base officials say they will launch a Minuteman III missile tomorrow.

The unarmed missile is scheduled to launch early in the morning. It will travel 4,200 miles across the pacific.

It is one in a series of periodic launches to ensure the ICBM Force is reliable.

Last month Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel postponed a test launch from Vandenberg because of concern it could be misinterpreted and worsen relations with North Korea.
