High country rocket launch

This is a 6 foot tall 2 1/2 inch diamter rocket launched on an Aerotech F24-7. Approximate altitude was 1000 feet (calculated from a simulator). The launch pad was at about 8500 feet above sea-level. In the thin air, the rocket came down very fast, even with an oversized parachute. It is now almost 8' tall and repainted dark blue/blue.
