    Brian, I had the opportunity to take a close look at your Black Fly yesterday while I was setting up on the pad next to yours. Beautiful paint and execution in general. The nosecone was pretty special.

    I like red rockets and I like short rockets, too.

    Even asked who made the kit...D'oh!!

    Nice work. Congrats on the L1.

    In 1873, William Snow established the Snow Ranch.

    Thanks ! My kids asked the same question yesterday as we were pulling out on the highway after the launch.
