Rocket Pictures

We look at this design now and laugh, because there was no way it would fly- much less make it to a tornado.

Successful flight!

Brian running across the field yelling, "Shoot it! Shoot it! Shoot the picture!"  The red arrow shows R2-2's recovery system bringing it down safely.
Due to fast launch speed, a picture of the actual launch was too difficult to capture.
After a perfect flight, R2-2 is recovered safely without a scratch.
