Real Rocket Hardware for the Scale Enthusiast
From this page you can launch to various historic rocket, missile, and spacecraft pages containing history, photos, drawings and other data.
Navaho Cruise Missile - One of the most advanced vehicles of all time, especially considering it was a missile of the 1950's. It laid the groundwork in many areas and influenced technology from the nuclear submarine Nautilus to the Space Shuttle. This series of 65 photos are of the restored Navaho missile on display outside the Naval Station at Cape Canaveral, Florida.
Saturn V at Johnson Space Center - A look at the centerpiece of vehicle displays at Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas. This is the only Saturn V display anywhere that consists entirely of components intended for flight. You will see the vehicle from its arrival on the JSC's dock on the shores of Clear Lake in 1977, through its struggle with the elements over the years, various repaintings, and finally, it's journey into the 21st century and the treatment it deserves.
Little Joe II at White Sands (mid-60's tests) - A few high resolution images from transparencies of the Little Joe II test vehicle which was part of the Apollo program. It was used to test the launch escape systems under flight conditions in the period from May 1963 to January 1966.
Saturn I SA4 - Some relatively high resolution images of my favorite in the Saturn I series.
Vanguard - Drawings, photos, and history of this pioneering and much misappreciated vehicle that contributed much more to the American space program than most think.
MLAS - Max Launch Abort System test flight in 2009. Video and photos of the vehicle during assembly and during flight
