All of the M/D-21 flights originated from Area 51, as did the early SENIOR BOWL test flights. Captive flights were carried out over Nevada and launches took place over the Pacific Missile Range.

One of the SENIOR BOWL captive flights inadvertently became a launch when the vehicle separated from the pylon and the rocket booster ignited. The unguided vehicle crashed before the ramjet had a chance to operate.
