SpaceX reported their rocket's flight as nominal.

I agree that BO's Shepard landing is/was quite impressive.

The Aerobee is a nice little kit. Fun to build and a fairly impressive when finished. One of the first Semroc kits I built. Nice flyer, too.

The only problem I can see is that he was too close to an airport. Other than that, it's on him.

Clever bit there, with the faux nozzle stand and the retainer parts.
