Highlights
Fifth BSRA launch of the year, nice turnout. Clear, very hot, mild winds. My first launch was the AMRAAM for its first flight on a G40W. Then I flew the Small Endeavour on a H143-10SS for a nice flight, though the chute stuck in the body tube. There was no damaged. Next I launched the Javelin on a J315R to 3189 feet. I flew the AMRAAM again on another G40. I launched the 4-inch Sandhawk on a K695-R for an excellent flight to 5602 feet. Last flight was the Mini-Magg on a I161-10W for a nice flight.
