Highlights
Ninth BSRA launch of the year, nice weather. My first launch was the AMRAAM on a G64-7W for a nice flight. Next was the Mini-Magg on a J315-14R for an excellent flight. Then I flew the Small Endeavour on a H180-10W. Next I launched the Mini-Magg again, this time on a J350-10W. Last flight was the AMRAAM on a F24-7W. Way underpowered, hit the ground before ejection. 24mm bad! The front of the body tube has a 1.5-inch crack, no other damage.
