Jack has been a HellFire Hellion since about 1998 and a rocketeer even longer than that. When he moved away to Washington we'd see him for HellFire most years anyway. It seems the salt is in his blood. In May of 2004 Jack succesfully flew his Level 3 project "Rumble Bee" up in Bellevue, Washington. Now, Jack's back in Utah and he has a whole lotta rocket to show us...

This rocket is called Homer and it is  5.5 inches in diameter. Homer stands at 9 feet 10 inches long and weighs in at a spry 28.5 pounds fully loaded. Homer will be flying on an M1315 motor. Homer's  first flight will be at Hellfire 13 on the Bonneville Salt Flats, Saturday, August 2, 2008.  The projected altitude for this craft is right around 9,000 feet AGL. 

Should be a spectacular flight!

Take a peek at all of Jack's projects on his website
