Western Australia Launch 7th October

Postby Scoop1261 » Thu Sep 27, 2007 9:37 am

Any new birds being prepped to fly at the scheduled 7th October launch?
Or does anyone have any special flights planned?

Hope the weather is as good as it has been for the last couple of launches.

What is the deal with the waiver this time, has it been amended to permanent 5,000ft or is it still 3,500ft?

good luck with today's launches. As I have just walked in the door from work and its 6:35am I don't think I will make it. Rip the sky in two for me and I look forward to hopefully seeing many great pics and video. I am loathed to miss a launch but I will be at the next one.

They looked like pretty nice flights....I218R is a great reload...plenty of suds off the pad for a bigger rocket, and nice short burn!!

Nice whistle from the split fin design
