Bare Necessities Suffers a Separation



Bare Necessities: N5800 C-Star Flying Case

This incredible project with a mostly metal airframe (but perhaps not enough) seems to have shredded at Black Rock. We have to wait for more info to find out what happened and perhaps even why...

It appears as if the nosecone and airframe were largely intact, and the problems happened at only mach 2.5 Quite possibly a separation for some reason.

Check out this rocket (metal, center) and a few other extreme min. diameter projects:
