  • Description

    Titles read: "USA - ATLAS BLOWS UP".

    General view of the Atlas long-range missile on its launching pad at Vandenburg Air Force Base. Steam and smoke rise from the pad and from the rocket.

    The rocket fires and starts to rise, but then the nose tilts over and the whole thing falls back towards the ground, exploding in masses of flame and smoke. Spectacular explosion! Thick black smoke rises from the pad.
