Of The Month
just like grapes, there's a bunch of them!

Grumpy Dog length is 7.5 feet, weighing in at 13
ozs and can be flown as a 2 stage.
Grumpy Dog II lifting off on an Aerotech E 15-4. Grumpy Dog photos
by Glenn Roth.
The next 2 photos were plucked from Dick's Rocket Dungeon while Dick was on a phone call... RG XIV photos taken by Nick DeBrita.
From Red Glare XIV, we love this one called Black Star Voyager
by Joe Zawodny. It flys on a CTI L1030. Look closely into the red flame and you can see a nice string of Mach Diamonds. Awesome
paint job too!
Like upscales? We do! Also from Red Glare XIV and in keeping with
our main Fire & Smoke feature this month, check out Phil
Ash's 4x UFO Invader blasting off on a CTI K 1440. Gotta love all that fire & smoke!
Ahhh youth! From the April 21, 2013
USLI Launch in Toney, Alabama the Virginia Tech USLI team shows us their version of a rocket babe. The man
in the middle with the blue cap and shades is none other than VT alum, Homer Hickam Jr. the author of Rocket
Boys, many of you will know his movie October Sky.
The VT guys didn't quite get the art ...on the nose but
no one was complaining.
Here again is Homer with me and the original Rocket Babe
at a Birmingham Rocket Boys outreach event
a few years back. Homer is our all time favorite author and has written many great books. In fact our den looks like the Homer
Hickam Library. Check them all out at...
Now, check out Fire & Smoke!

our Photo of the Month page!
