3 week old photo update

Here are some pictures from the launch I did with Kevin and Shawn earlier in June.

First up: Apogee Blue Streak on a C6-7, and yes I did get it back.

Estes Comanche-3 flying on a D12-0, C6-0, C6-7 All 3 stages lit and it was great flight. This is the 2nd time I've build this rocket, the first being about 15 years ago when I was a kid. I never even got 2 stages to lite then so this was a thrill.

My Apogee Snarky read for its first flight. I launched it on an E30-4 which worked great, the rocket rotated to a proper "Flight" position and then just went soaring. It got a little too horizontal however and I had a nice 6" zipper on both tubes when I recovered it.
