Don Alexander's Honest John


 Don used 7.5" tubing from PML to make the airframe, the nose cone came from Smokin' Rockets. The motor is a 6000 Nsec Kosdon case with a red tail load Don made with Ron Zeppin's help with formulation. Mike Meele is helping with the set up.  Great flight with good recovery.

Will load other pictures when I get them.
