Missile Scare Hawaii

The ballistic missile scare I was awoken to in Hawaii yesterday reminded me of a yacht delivery to the Marshall Islands. While scary I had some degree of confidence our ‘THAAD’ (Terminal High Altitude Area Defense) interceptor would knock it out of the sky… although it was a very LONG nine-minute wait for impact … either for incineration or salvation – 50/50 chance!

I witnessed a successful test of the system in the west Pacific years back while I loitered in the drop zone…click on this link for the blog about that trip: https://wp.me/p1pcMc-j
