I was taught at the fire academy decades ago that red/brown smoke is probably methyl-ethyl-bad-$hi+ and I should use the RLH factor (run like he!!). We were referring to tanker crashes/spills, but I...

Skylab Astronaut Owen Garriott

Garriott passed away yesterday. He was a temporary record holder with 60 days in space in 1973. He later flew on the shuttle Columbia and was the first to operate HAM radio from orbit.

No, it's the Canadian kit, which is drastically different. There are blocks to check off for runs to Tim Hortons and The Beer Store. Also, all the instances of "o" have been converted to "ou"....

I have yet to lose my Beta because I've only boosted it with my special 1/4A3-0 and 1/2A3-0 motors. :cool: I like the idea that you want the complete model to be a rescue.
