DC-X

DC-X
We were fortunate enough to see the launch of the experimental vehicle DC-X on 09/11/1993. This picture was taken the day before when we were allowed to get up close and personal. It was like a "Buck Rogers" movie to watch the rocket raise 30 feet into the air, hover, and translate sideways, and then gracefully descend. It's a shame that the project never reached completion.
