Air Force officials say nuclear-missile crews left blast door open at least twice
Blast door open
An Air Force missile crew commander stands at the door of his launch capsule April 15, 1997, 100 feet under ground where he and his partner are responsible for 10 nuclear-armed ICBMs, in north-central Colorado. Twice this year, Air Force officers entrusted with the launch keys to nuclear-tipped missiles have been caught leaving open a blast door meant to help prevent a terrorist or other intruder from entering their underground command post and potentially compromising secret launch codes, Air Force officials told The Associated Press.
