Rocket Babe will fly on 2 different engine combinations. For
a slow, more realistic liftoff, we use a central D12-3 with 4 A8-3's. When it is a little windy and we want to get
up to speed quickly, we go to a core D12-5 and 4 C6-5's
Rocket Babe on the pad just prior to flight #19.
Now at 26 flights and counting.
Clearing the rod with all 5 engines burning.
Above you can see the chutes beginning to deploy as the wadding sails away. The booster is half
way between the chutes on it's side with the bottom to the camera.
