I know, Halloween was a few days ago but I just found
Dave Lang's skeleton rocket and couldn't pass on posting it. With just a little imagination, the right nose cone and paint
scheme, you can turn a run of the mill 3 fins and a cone into a very nice themed flyer.
Most of us older rocketeers have seen just about everything fly at some point or another.
We pride ourselves on being able to make just about anything fly and safely recover. With enough thrust and some passive guidance,
most anything will fly.
As you can see,
"Skeletor" (my nickname for it) made a nice straight liftoff on a smokey motor. What more could you ask for?
Above, you see Larry Drake's nicely clustered
bird all fired up. We love clustered rockets, the more the better!
To each his own but it always strikes me as strange
that a large percentage of flyers have never clustered anything. It's not that difficult, most rockets can be easily modified
to fly on multiple engines and they're more fun, especially for night flying.
More than likely you already have some everyday items around your home that can be modified into an Odd-Roc
or a kit you can cluster with just a few additional parts. Our 3 engine SR-71 only required a little nose weight and 2 additional
Give it some thought and remember to share your craftsmanship;

Where No 90 Year Old Has Gone Before
Well, it finally happened for William Shatner, he made it into space, going
where no 90 year old has gone before! I for one, was happy for him. Even the rocket... seems appropriate for Captain Kirk.
The photo above was a publicity photo
and as we all know, if you're going to be on the landing party you don't want to wear a red shirt. I can only imagine the
fun Shatner's companions must have had with him along and you have to admit, he doesn't look that bad for 90.
Verna & I watched the launch together by way of Face Time; me
from home and Verna from her hotel room in Austin. It was a fun morning and I’m
glad all went well. After all, we wouldn’t want to lose the Captain. What would happen to Star
As you might
imagine, after the flight, Shatner was very emotional and understandably so, and to that end I'm going to let him close out
this month's updates with his final words from the trip...
Well, what can I say... he is THE Captain.
Live long and prosper, Captain Kirk!
