THAAD test update
An item that appeared in the March 19 column incorrectly reported the number of missiles used in the test of the Theater High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD). Two THAAD interceptor missiles were fired at a single-target ballistic missile.
After the first interceptor hit the target, range safety officers destroyed the second interceptor, not the target.
