In 2004 I custom-built a model rocket out of parts to repair two other rockets. The rocket was called ShockWave, after the defunct roller coaster at Six Flags Great America. This flight took place at a NIRA Club Launch on September 21, 2006. It was ShockWave's third flight and was the first successful flight. I retired from rocketry in December 2006, the last project was repainting ShockWave once more.
