This is what happens when you get to close to a rocket for a picture and the person pressing the launch button forgets to give a count down.....:eek:

Sweet ! What beach is that?! I've tried Blackpool , Southport & St Annes beaches and on all of them , when you go to a safe distance out onto the beach , the sand turns in to major quicksand!

Cool did you only launch the Bullpup there? How far away is the sea from where you where?

I launched quite a few rockets including a 3xd beast which just kept going up so i needed plenty of recovery space.The sea is still about quarter of a mile away but the tide is creeping in but i it was alow tide and it would,nt have reached us.

check this out:)

EDIT:

Hey Arthur & any other UK TRF members around the same area as us , does anyone want a little TRF launch on that beach ? I go on holiday on the 7th of August so I will not be able to visit the WRS once again. So instead I was wondering if we could get a few small launches up on that beach with a few of us attending. Just a thought......Hey what are the wind speeds like there?
