Views of Iridium launch onboard a Boeing Delta-II from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California from Launch Complex SLC-2

The Commercial Delta IS-1 mission launched a cluster of five satellites for the Iridium communication system. The launch was originally scheduled for Friday, February 8, 2002 13:00 EST (18:00 GMT) but was rescheduled 24 hours because launch constraints on vehicle motion due to wind were exceeded. The launch was then moved to Sunday due to the unavailability of the P3 Aircraft and then to Monday, Feb 11, 2002 due to a fuel sensor problem.
