NEFAR’s Bunnell Blast 2012

Last weekend, NEFAR hosted its annual two-day Bunnell Blast launch.

Rockets from small to large took to the air on Saturday.

And even a furry rocket flew … sort of …

Saturday’s launch lasted into the early evening allowing for spectacular dusk and night launches.

Gusty wind, unfortunately, provided a challenge for flyers on Sunday.

But, some large rockets still flew including one of Gary Dahlke’s two-stagers.

My YouBee, an upscale of the Odd’l Rockets Break Away, flew on an Aerotech K480W motor.

Robb Haskins flew his Cluster Thrust on a cluster of four motors.

Now, it’s time to start preparing for Bunnell Blast 2013!
