Premature Ejection

A rare catch of a fleeting midair moment - the forward retention for the solid-fuel motor has failed and so it thusts forward up through the rocket, pushing the parachute and nose cone out prematurely.


For some reason, the Aerotech Sumo seems prone to all sorts of airborne high jinks.


Just got back from the LUNAR Snow Ranch launch, and it was full of excitement and mishap.... more later....
