Estes Mongoose

This was my first two stage rocket. I never did a staged rocket when I was a kid, so this was new territory. It actually worked.

1) 5/25/97 B6-0/B6-6 Flew perfectly. My first two stage launch.
2) 6/08/97 C6-0/C6-7 Flew out of sight! The booster stage was recovered, but the main rocket was lost.
