On Sunday, June 25th, MASA held its seventh launch of the year.  This was a special "extra" launch.

A few of the flights:

Sunday was a bit windy. I started out with a simple 2-stage rocket that landed 3/4 the way to the end of the first field. Hmm, not good news for the 2000'+ "G" flights I planned for the weekend.

I had another parachute deployment failure on an E18-7. The ejection charge fired, but the parachute was trapped inside the tube by a fouled shock cord.  I flew a buzzer on that rocket, but the switch was damaged on impact, and turned off. I only searched an hour for that rocket, with help from a friend who came to watch me crash rockets. I finished my day off with another 2-stage flight on the ring-fin contraption.
