Estes Model Rockets (1970)

While still a young guy in the late 1960s and early 70s, one of my hobbies was building & launching model rockets. We'd build & paint them, then launch them on the weekends. Here a group of us gathered at the home of a friend near Rochester, NY and spent an afternoon launching our latest Estes rockets. One of my experimental models went up only 10 ft before it hit the ground and then popped the parachute! I filmed this day with my 16mm Bolex movie camera on silent black & white film. I believe this is the only movie I ever shot of my hobby. Filmed: July 3, 1970
