Highlights
First launch was the Hi-Tech on a H123, excellent flight to 3400 feet. Next was the Astrocam on a C6-3, looked like a sky shot. Then I launched the Sudden Rush on the I284, perfect straight up flight to 4200+ feet. The dual deployment worked perfectly for the first time. The wind calmed down some, so I launched the Iris on a J180-10T. A nice flight and long burn. The wind picked up again, so I flew the Alpha (Leah's request) and called it a day.
