X-Wing rocket disintegrates in flight
Plaster City (CA) – A scale replica of a Star Wars X-Wing fighter disintegrated in mid-flight after being launched in Plaster City, California. The ill-fated fighter was powered by four “L” class rocket engines and was fired straight up into the air. It tumbled after approximately two seconds of flight and all four wings ripped off.
We were on site to videotape the launch and have excellent footage (we were only 50 yards from the rocket!) of the fiery mayhem. The video clip should be up either Sunday afternoon or Monday morning.
