Juno Missile Test


     SAGUACHE COUNTY, Colo. - Colorado State Patrol received a report of a plane crash Thursday but White Sand Missile Range, who conducted a missile test Thursday, says it had nothing to do with their missile testing.

White Sands Missile Range conducted a test Thursday morning that produced a contrail visible throughout Western United States. The Juno missile was launched from Fort Wingate near Gallup N.M., and flew to White Sands Missile Range to be intercepted by the PAC-3.

Meanwhile, someone called 911 to report what they thought was a plane crash in Saguache County around 6:40 a.m., Colorado State Patrol spokesman Trooper Josh Lewis told our sister station in Denver, KMGH.

Lewis said officials at the U.S. Army's White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico told them it is a test missile.

However, Public Affairs Specialist Cammy Montoya at White Sands told 7NEWS the missile was not theirs and that the Juno performed as expected. NORAD also said that nothing crashed in Colorado Thursday morning.

Trooper Lewis said he did not have an exact address for the crash because White Sands told State Patrol to "stand down." . . .
