    Picturesque aerial views of two British launch sites..

    Some shots over Elsworth, Cambridgeshire (EARS) on Sunday 5/11/17, and some over Fairlie Moor, Renfrewshire (SARA) 24/8/17. Elsworth apogee was 3848' on a Cesaroni J425 Blue Streak, and Fairlie was 3308' on a J357 again Blue Streak. In the case of Fairlie apogee was in cloud, so these were taken after descent below the cloud deck. Basically the same 4" dia rocket ('Trigger's Broom') in both cases, with some modifications between flights. Also a shot of the booster section swathed in smoke over Elsworth, just because it looks nice..

    Thanks - it's a Mobius - the wide angle lens version.
