PHOTO 33 --C-II rocket motor setup for static test, June 1973
PHOTO 33During development of my earlier rocket motors, the test equipment tended to be less sophisticated. This C-II test motor (development verson of the C-400), being fired for the second time (the first was unsuccesful, see photo 35), was mounted on a wooden beam device which allowed the approximate maximum thrust to be recorded.
The next photo displays this motor being successfully fired...
