What? They're ROCKETS. Big, long, lean and strong... you were expecting maybe classy jokes?

Hard to say, there is a decent amount of setup for a large hybrid like that so it won't be first thing. I would imagine they would try to fly it at the peak time if there aren't any complications, so 1 or 2 maybe.

Our standing altitude waiver with the FAA is 9000 ft, so they will need to call in a window for the higher flight, I'm not sure how far ahead of time they have to do that.
Make it happen.

For those not on Twitter or Facebook (which is just silly btw).

Pics from the Launch.

It's the TRA MN flickr pool, so if you scroll far enough you'll run into older stuff.
