James after surgery, guarded by his faithful "terror-ier."
Notice closeup of the knee that wasn't to be done. <g>
Notice the horsies grazing faaaaaaaaaaar away in the pasture!
But why do they lurk so far away when there are humans with carrots nearby...
...because there are things that go woosh and bang in the paddock!
The "rocket boys and girls" set up.
James sets up an Estes Nike Arrow for launch on a makeshift pad.
Naaman, Sarah, and even Aubrey gather round as Jerry watches while John sets up some rockets.
A rocket seeks the sky: Estes AGM-12B "Bullpup D."
Wow, you guys even had an Army guy fetching your rockets!
Well, sorta. Jerry came directly from Guard weekend--oh, and he's in the Air Force. <g>
James prepares an Estes AMRAAM for launch.
Not only a contrail, but engine fire--Estes AMRAAM
A hangar for denizens of the "old flight" is the backdrop for new flight.
The rocket is an Estes AIM-9 "Sidewinder."
A "squat little rocket" that sure can fly! A Quest DC-Y.
A beautiful shot of a great launch. The Quest Nike-Smoke.
Jerry brings the final rocket home.
James only made one "sacrifice to the rocket gods."
Unfortunately the "Sidewinder" flew outside the recovery area.
Now that it's quiet, Claudia's horses return to the paddock:
From top to bottom, Emily, Yellow, and Gussie.
Thanks for the loan of the pasture, Claudia and Doug!
