Launch Day 8th December

Postby Kryten » Thu Dec 05, 2013 7:25 am

A reminder that this is our last launch in 2013.
The forecast is looking good:
Mostly sunny. Light winds becoming northeasterly 15 to 20 km/h during the morning.
Get there early to take advantage of the calm conditions

Awesome looking photos David! We'll have to put those up on the NSWRA website. It was sure a great day for rockets with nice blue skies. I'm really looking forward to the one in the last photo flying at Dubbo next year. 8)
