Marty Weiser launch report

November 8, 2009

We held SPARC's last scheduled launch of the year today under reasonable conditions. Joe Cooney was our launch director. One of Joe's favorite holidays is Halloween and he was very happy to have signed up lead the launch on Halloween. Unfortunately, some things came up and the launch had to be postponed until Nov. 7.
When I heard about this I hunted down Joe's long lost evil twin brother Jack O'Cooney and talked him into coming to our launch to try to make Joe feel better. Jack and Joe finally met this afternoon and I have posted three pictures to the NW Rocketry Image Gallery. http://northwestrocketry.com/uploads/Jack_and_Joe.jpg http://northwestrocketry.com/uploads/Jack_on_the_pad.jpg http://northwestrocketry.com/uploads/Jack_in_flight.jpg The fight was good, but could have used an even shorter delay that the XS that I used in the I284. He broke a leg during landing which is what I was afraid might happen - easily repaired. I had a great time building Jack and most days was wondering if it was legal to have that much fun. Marty
