    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.

    I think that’s a Centuri Excalibur behind me as I am loading my Thunder ROC on the pad.

    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 )
