Rocket Boomlet

When my brother and I were kids in the late 60s, we went through a phase of building Estes rockets.

Some of the things we did were a little unorthodox, such as using a cherry bomb instead of a nose cone. It was a lot of fun when the rocket did a horizontal swerve and exploded on a neighbor's roof.

Last weekend, we did a little nostalgic rocketry, courtesy of my brother (without the cherry bombs). It was a blast! (listen for the ejection charge at the end of the launch).
