But in all seriousness, has anyone had any update on the 3 persons that got injured in the blast, I think Jeroen was the most critically injured.

I have been waiting on a CTI O3400 and case for over 15 months after giving up my place in the queue to the NZRA guys (that was a great launch by the way, largest model rocket motor flown in NZ), I have been in constant communications with AR on the progress of the shipment and am happy with the progress given current circumstances and our geographical location.

Would we like more frequent motor shipments, sure, are we prepared to triple our costs of our purchases, hell no... The hazmat shipping charges alone must be a bomb, I think the majority of people take for granted the massive task it must be to import this stuff...

There's been no official update on Jeroen since the 24th of May, unless Blake has heard something. Hope he is healing well. (http://www.pro38.com/pdfs/General_CTI_Statement_2.pdf)

I speak with CTI often and am aware that Jeroen is out of hospital and is making a great recovery. Obviously this has had very little attention, primarily in the 'consumer' world because it was due to a commercial incident not relating to hobby rocketry at all.

Whilst this has caused a number of delays, the upgraded facility should be fantastic and we are looking forward to filling the backlog of bigger motors ASAP.

Thanks for the update, that's great news, let's hope he makes if not a full, the best recovery possible.
