Reassuring

|

An Air Force nuclear missile unit failed a safety and security inspection this week, the second wing of its kind to stumble on tests this year.

The latest involves the 341st Missile Wing at Malmstrom Air Force Base in Montana, which operates about a third of the 450 Minuteman III nuclear-tipped intercontinental ballistic missiles, according to an Air Force statement.
