Dave Glass June launch report

June 14, 2011

Looks like Bob beat me to the punch and hit most of the highlights, so I'll just add a few personal notes.
I managed to put up six flights (thanks in part to leftovers from last launch's windy shut-down). One of my favorite rockets, Dude, Where's My Nose Cone? went up on an I161 (thanks for finding me some, Bob). As I said after the flight, "I love seeing wierd stuff in the air". Yet Another Goddard launched for the second time on a D12-3; great up part (see previous comment) but an energetic eject charge tore off a strut that the recovery system was anchored to, and the Goddard is now (ahem) history. Something Fishy flew with a video camera on on I 218R; nice video, if perhaps a bit "spinny" (not bad if you slow it down). The motor breakdown is as follows: A 6, B 5, C 22, D 16, E 7, F 2, G 4, H 3, I 9, J 2. Both J's were flown by Rob Emanuele, including the last flight of the day, a picture-perfect dual-deploy with his Yellow Boy on a J330. David Powers got in teh most flights with 10. Beautiful day, great launch (69 flights), thanks to all!
