Williams "Wildfire" Westernationals 2018 photo and video thread

Postby drew » Thu Jun 07, 2018 6:16 pm

Afternoon all,

I figured I'd start a new thread for photos and videos from WWW2018. I took a fair amount of photos, a few of which I'll post here. Below each photo group is a link to my Google Photos albums if you'd like to see more photos or download a higher resolution copy of an image.

FYI if there's a photo of your rocket that you like and you want more please just ask. For each photo posted I've probably got 5+ other images from the flight.

Looks like you all had a great time again. Hope it was not too cold at night! Sorry I missed it this year. But, I am booking my flight for Thunda. I am sure to see you all there....
