We have lift off!  Moments after motor ignition we had a nozzle blow out resulting in a lawn dart of the model.  Repairs will be a simple rebuild of the nose cone.

We launched the Thing-a-ma-Jig and the Whatchamacallit to show the kids the two different, but related kits.

The HERC-5 takes to the air.  We had lots of helpers for the launch and recovery too!

One of the big hits of the day was the Decaffeinator!

Like natives returning from the kill, it took 6 kids to recover the Decaffeinator!

Each played a part in the recovery and all had a ball!
