Boris frightens the new comers with the TOGinator!

The Tres make a showing!
dsc02217.jpg (52403 bytes)
Turning in a great flight!  Not sure of the motors used, but based on the wind, B motors would have been recommended!
dsc02218.jpg (45959 bytes)
Good recovery too!

And we have LIFTOFF!

An interesting way to look at Tony's models :)
dsc02226.jpg (21220 bytes)
When I saw this two stager, I was questioning the wisdom considering the high winds.  Oddly enough, while the sustainer landed quite close by, the BOOSTER landed WAY on the other side of the field!

Another shot of the group gathered on this crisp day

On the pad and ready to go!

Flown with an A8-3 (cuz I love flying rockets, just hate chasing them! LOL)
dsc02245.jpg (32488 bytes)
Nice, arrow straight flight!

An interesting pumpkin colored rockets

Setting up the Corona-2 (with booster).  I missed getting pix of the launch, but she turned in a great flight on a pair of B motors!
dsc02252.jpg (86598 bytes)
One of my kids from the Academy of Science and Design rocketry classes came for the launch and flew his Rhino from last year.  Bless his mom (right) for braving the cold!
dsc02253.jpg (86836 bytes)
The very definition of anticipation, as they wait for an available pad

Houston, we have liftoff!

Can't recall the name of this rocket, but, MAN, that's pretty!
dsc02257.jpg (41602 bytes)
Looks as good in the air as it does on the ground!

A second launch as seen from the same area.  This time is was the Bender rocket!
DSC02262crop.jpg (26780 bytes)
See?? :)
dsc02263.jpg (91771 bytes)
The crowd actually got larger near the end of the day.  No doubt in anticipation of the night launch we have scheduled.
dsc02264.jpg (112736 bytes)"
A young man looking through our rocket catalog.  Yep, that's the ticket!
dsc02265.jpg (82270 bytes)
Don't know the name of this rocket, but it is BEAUTIFUL!  It had a mishap during boost (which I missed) and pretty much re-kitted itself...
dsc02266.jpg (69718 bytes)
Another test flight of the Tesla, on a B motor.
dsc02269.jpg (37771 bytes)
Looking good in the air, I had concerns with her stability and wanted to test her on a windy day.
dsc02273.jpg (46087 bytes)
While she boosted upward, she did get a bit squirrelly which will be addressed and corrected before we kit this model.
dsc02274.jpg (42365 bytes)
With the sun dipping low in the sky, I decided to try to get some nice sunset pix.

The CMASS flag at sunset.
dsc02286.jpg (42732 bytes)
Taking the field down is a group effort.
dsc02288.jpg (43396 bytes)
Yep, the sunset was spectacular!

One of our first night launch vehicles

Boris' UFO, all lit up for the night launch.  He flew this beast TWICE!

You can JUST make out Boris as he hooks up the igniter lieads.
dsc02321.jpg (28168 bytes)
Liftoff was spectacular!
dsc02323.jpg (28058 bytes)
The pix don't do it justice
