|Valkaria Air Show
Hot, but cool!
More nice weather.
Mother Nature smiles on Florida and her rocket geeks!
Nice weather, for a change
Several university teams brought interesting rockets to fly
|Keystone Airshow 2/20/10
NEFAR officers and members represented rocketry at this fine little airshow.
Gallery is still photos taken at this show, mostly of the WWII warbirds and the folks admiring them.
What January was to cold,
February was to windy.
The coolest NEFAR launch on record.
It was freezing! Literally.
Our intrepid rocketeers flew anyway, of course.
Two day launch
V2 in Flight
Large crowd, good launch despite lots of wind
Low power launch
|High Power Highlights
More from Gus, launches from ancient times
Gus Thayer brings back memories
of some rockets that almost worked.
Two day launch. More launches than I've ever seen on Saturday, then there was another substantial launch on Sunday.
I got a hot new HD camcorder!
Then I had to buy a hot new computer to edit the video.
And a hot new program to learn...
So now we have some experimental HD video on the web.
Apologies that it won't run well on slow computers, sorry.
Lemme know what you think, good, bad, etc.
Check out the Juno launch. Amazing!
and Lots of Rockets!
We had great weather and some very impressive launches. Lawrence of America film crew on hand to video some of our stars!
Overcast in morning and early afternoon, clearing for high flights later.
Bad day for Talons but hey! This is rocketry!
Good hot weather, lots of fliers, super sparky motors, 3-stage rocket, big flying spider... just the usual stuff for this club.
Large thunderstorm system closes the afternoon launch, but some good flights happened in the morning.
Lots of launches. This month the Florida University hybrid teams do their launches.
Well there wasn't a NEFAR launch in May.
Big fires all around... we would have been very unpopular with some important folks if we'd done anything that could have caused another fire. Scrubbing the launch was the right thing to do.
So here is a consolation prize. Jimmy's videos from the Tripoli SC Orangeburg launch on March 31 and April 1. Lots of noisy launches, about half sugar, half AP.
Lots of videos, but incomplete info on many flights. Please help me finish this page by sending flyer and rocket specs.

This page contains links to collections of videos from NEFAR launches and other events.
If you would like your videos included,
please contact Jimmy
Yawn and we will figure out how to get your videos out there.
I've done my best to describe the rockets and credit the people who have made them, but often get it wrong.
My range of error spans the entire spectrum of human capability, and perhaps a little beyond.
So please send me any corrections, large or small,
and additions you would like to see on these pages.
Those of you who are still on dial-up.... I feel your pain. Contact me for alternatives.
