Thanks again Hugh. Really cool. I think I sweat a few pounds out during that ride.
Great lunch in Annapolis too!

Was it 1/4 scale? Nice!

I was at Canaveral last month ... saw that Saturn 5 they have in the museum ... unbelievable. Absolutely huge. We got a pretty good tour of the place. Saturn V is the king.

Looks like you had perfect weather, I woulda loved to film it!

The rocket is 1/10th scale. They launched a Nike Smoke before hand which was 1/4 scale.
