Atlas Missile 5C's launch, test number 251, at Cape Canaveral, Florida. Night scene of Atlas Missile 5C taking off from launch pad. The Missile advances upward after its launch.
(Note: This was the third C-series Atlas test. The fuel staging disconnect valve did not close properly at booster section separation, which led to loss of fuel tank pressure and rupture of the intermediate bulkhead. The missile destroyed itself at T+172 seconds.)
