Post up any "Back In The Day" rocketry photo's you may have . . .
My first rocket, an Estes Alpha, in image caught by my grandmother in 1978...
Original LOC logo.... for those wondering what LOC means.
Where I got my start in 1997 as a B.A.R...
Al Kirchner with his "Little Joe II" comparing models with Estes' "Saturn Ib" held by Jaroslav Broz at a NARAM 9 in 1967.
This picture appeared in Time magazine and blew me away...I had been flying my little Estes Little Joe II.
I knew there was a Saturn 1 B and some larger two stagers, but this big scale model was amazing to me.
More pictures and info on the event here:
I think that’s a Centuri Excalibur behind me as I am loading my Thunder ROC on the pad.
Original DART California crew at Lucerne Dry Lake, 1986. L-R: Dave Cook, Jeff Brewer, Don Brent, Kenny Harkema, Todd White. The LOC KV3 flew on 3 Aerotech J motors.
Unfortunately, no surviving photos of the "Rocket Gang" from 1970's in Cleveland, TN. I remember flying almost daily with a kid named Walter Hamilton. If you're out there, Walt--I hope you're still flying.
Loving this thread. Keep 'em coming.
Does anyone know who the guy in this pic is ( his daughter is standing with him ) ?
I believe he was a Member of UROC in Utah ?
( Pic is circa 1998 - 2000, I think )
