London's under another Blitz! This time, it's from John Coker and his rainbow set of Crayon rockets!

See the article from the London Daily Mail.

Jolly good show, there, chap! Hip hip! :clap::clap::clap:

And of course the article just
had to mention 'explosion' and
'more dangerous'...

Yellow press journalism for your
average ignorant lemmings...

That's the Daily Mail for you. :rolleyes:

Publicity is always cool, but it seems like a really random article to me. Some of the comments at the bottom of the article were good for a laugh earlier, but now they're not displaying for me...

John flew these out at Black Rock in Sept 2004. That was about 5 and a half years ago. London News Service is about 5,100 miles from Black Rock..thats still pretty slow for a news service.

Agree on the "explode" point, but the "more dangerous" description is attributed specifically to John Coker, so the Daily Mail isn't to blame for that one.
