Atlas missile malfunction

Three different views of an Atlas Missile Explosion in 1961. The first clip is a wide shot at normal speed, the second two clips are photographed high speed at 400 frames per second. This was a test of the Atlas E Missile outfitted with a dummy warhead at Vandenberg Air Force Base on the California coast. This footage was shot by the folks at Lookout Mountain Air Force Base.
