This was a Nike-Zeus target missile test from VAFB's 576-E and went entirely according to plan. The spring and summer of 1963 had a highly successful run of Atlas launches, including Gordon Cooper's Mercury flight. The only fails during this period were 139D/Midas 8 (control lost after the hydraulic fluid leaked out) and 24E (premature sustainer shutdown due to electrical gremlins).
