Flights in order
Vaughn Bros. Javelin 4.0K1275-R
Thomas Ames Smokin' Rockets AMRAAMM1297-R

Eighth BSRA launch of the year, at Twin Bridges site. Good weather, winds came up later in the day. I helped Jackson launch over 10 flights on his model rockets, so I didn't launch much. My first launch was the AMRAAM on a G64W. Then I flew the Javelin on a K12795-R for an excellent flight to 9487 feet. Next I did a team launch with Thomas Ames. He provided his just completed Smokin' Rockets 6" AMRAAM, and I provided the propulsion with a 75mm M1297-R. It was an excellent flight, some weather cocking, but dual-deployment worked as planned.
