There was a problem with the first rack, only two of the rockets had their igniters in far enough to light the motors.
If you look close, you can see the igniter burning.
And, the clips fall off.
Gary Slater and Lon Westfall lead the recovery.
Second rack, with more success.
This rocket was built at our Park District buils session on May 14th.
