Weather cocked a lot due to breezy conditions and had a high speed recovery. The shock cord broke and the booster crashed and broke apart. Pretty much a total loss of the booster. The nosecone and stripped parachute were recovered. One good thing is that the tail cone can be used to build another V-2!
