    …was BIG this year! Three Q motors on Saturday. This is just a quick snap from the 700 photos I took… Jeff is driving this scale Nike Smoke back in a Penske truck this evening, and the FBI came knocking back at home to ask a few questions.

    Many explosions and screaming missiles…. Teams from Missouri, Pittsburgh and Scotland. Very unusual failures of experimental motors and aluminum rockets. Mach 3. 93K ft. altitude with video of space. Whew! Lots of great stuff to share. =)

    leaders, bootload, ! Polyhedra !, and 7 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      *drool* Duuuude. That is just something else. The juxtuposition of military hardware (Ok, likely facimily) and the casual guys is fun. I hope you got a good shot of this bad boy takin for the stars.

      *rubs his hands together* This should be a fun couple weeks! (months? Is it too much to ask that you got THAT many amazing photos?)
