Titan II/Gemini Flight 3 - 12/18/2021

A8-3. Erroneous data on the FS Mini. Flight went well. Landed vertically in a bush, which is good because the chute didn't fully open. Came down more like a streamer.

Blue Origin Flight 2 - 12/18/2021

C6-3. SCRS (Santa Claus Rocket System) flight. Carrying Tiny Mate of Chipper Jones. Kevlar shock cord burned through at ejection and the booster separated from the capsule and parachute.
