Now, this is something you don't see at your typical high power launch!
In their April blog update, Verna and Randy highlight a launch at the most unlikely of spots - just off of an active airport runway. Normally, we have to be 5+ miles from an airport. However, the boys and girls at the SEARS club obtained permission to launch at the Pensacola Regional Airport. Wait, could this be a Photoshopped April 1st joke? It appears the source gallery was posted on March 21st. Since I only see one rocket, and it's a saucer, and there is a lot of other unrelated activity, I'm guessing that this was a special demo launch at some sort of open house. Or, something along those lines. In any event, this was some photo op!
