Update 12:29pET- DARPA says it could not regain contact with HTV2 but the hypersonic wedge can terminate its flight autonomously.
Sounds like it will go down about like planned anyway since they lost contact towards the end of the flight, id imagine they just have to locate it.
DARPA used Twitter to announce the launch and status of the flight.
Contact has been regained

Can you hear me now!!! Its funny, but not. There must be a design flaw! Could you imagine though, flying to LA to NY in 12 minutes?? What a ride, and I thought the Intimidator at Carowinds was crazy!
Here is a link I found about the plane

Do you really think that DARPA, who most likely employs some of the smartest people on the planet, would allow not ONE, but TWO, very, very, very, expensive, High tech space ramjets and assorted complex electronics, to just disappear?
"Whoops, guess we lost another one boys, who's up for some IHOP?". Lol.
I would bet my bottom dollar that they not only had electronic comm's but Radar AND Satellite's keeping a very close eye on where Exactly it was at every single second of it's flight.
This is run of the mill disinformation for somebody's benefit, obviously.
