We can also see many Rhino's and if you look closely, Flea and Overdrive too!

All eyes are on the Long OverDue!

The Over Drive is hard to capture with a camera!
dsc07292.jpg (51236 bytes)
As evidenced by this one.  It's there, just hard to see.  Top left.

Rhino's on the other hand, are easy to photograph!

The Nantucket Sound always puts in a good show.  She landed about 10 feet from where I was standing!
dsc07300.jpg (98411 bytes)
I called this one the Bumble-Rhino.  It doesn't bite, but it'll sting the heck out of you! LOL

The moment of ignition!
dsc07302.jpg (83195 bytes)
The
Frink-n-Frack gives us a good show.
dsc07303.jpg (77032 bytes)
The Tesla, however, was underpowered and pranged.  Easily fixed though!
dsc07304.jpg (63289 bytes)
And the Decaffeinator is always a crowd pleaser.
dsc07305.jpg (26930 bytes)
Beautiful return.  Some minor fin damage on landing.
That's it for this launch.  We had a great time.  Everyone was wonderful and I hope to be able to join you again next year!
