I was lucky enough to witness first-hand last night a launch of Peter's rocket!

Peter's done a really first-class job on his classic Estes Saturn V - it looks stunning :) I have to say - STOP FLYING IT!!!!! It's just too nice!

The lauch tower is great and really adds to the whole launch experience.

Let us know the timing and location. If I'm not up on site in the Territory I'll come along to watch....
