So this was a powered 2nd stage, not a DART? REALLY cool seeing (or NOT seeing) the smokeless exhaust!

Enerjet Dart

Another use for the 1340 booster - This is from the Sept. 72 Enerjet News.

Thanks Stephan.
That day at the beach was no Day At The Beach; in addition to losing the 1340/20,
the upscaled Sprint landed in the ocean. That one dated back to the ‘96/‘97 time frame as well.

See below. While I was digging, I found some old B3-6 motors (precursor to the B14's). The B4-0P I bought from Phred at NARAM 50. Has anyone heard from him lately?
