I'm dedicating this rocket to my dad. He passed away a few years ago and one of my earliest childhood memories is when he would come home from work, we would all go to greet him at the door and he would pick me up and throw me up in the air and say "Alley Oop"! This was also the name of his B-17 squadron in WWII, the "Alley Oop" group. The 4 squadrons in the 92nd Bomb Group all had different variations of Alley Oop, which was a popular comic strip character back then, as their squadron insignias. So everytime I throw a rocket up in the air, it will be called Alley Oop. The original insignia has Alley Oop riding a T-Rex with a bomb in his tail. I had Mark at StickerShock change the bomb to a rocket. Great job Mark! Well thats the story behind my inspiration for this rocket so...on with the build.
