Eight flights of a new Space Shuttle Boilerplate model were made in October 1998. Greg Warren of the SEP Program recorded 4 of the flights which were made at the Rocket City Blastoff on Oct. 24-25th. Click here to download a Zipped 1.8 meg compressed Mpeg movie which is titled as the 3rd flight (actually 4th flight at that launch, 7th flight of that boilerplate). This is the best flight, with a good view of SRB sep, ET sep, orbiter staging, and glide to landing.

Also thanks to Doug Pratt for allowing me to post a copy of this Mpeg which he converted. Doug is the sysop for the Compuserve Sport Rocketry forum ( Update - Compuserve's Rocketry Forum is long-gone. Doug runs Pratt Hobbies, at:

Please note that the animated GIF to the top left and frame at top right lost much quality in converting the frames into a GIF, the actual mpeg looks better!

Five 1988 Sunguidance flights were made using a Cineroc, 2 for roll tests and 3 for pitch-yaw tests. Click here to download a zipped 1.5 meg Quicktime movie ( 160 x 120 pixels). After many false starts, it seems that now finally this QT movie will play on PC's!

This is from the 5th flight , pitch and yaw control, which was three-staged using Chad-staged D12-0/D12-0/D12-5.

Thanks to: Matt Steele for the use of his Cineroc, the late "Mr Cineroc" Herb Desind for arranging for the film loading and processing, and Tom Beach for the QuickTime movie conversion.
