  1. The rocket is on the tower i just got home from there. i ran the crane that put it on the tower. and it is simply amazing probably the best moment of my short crane operating career.

  2. I hope to see the video!! I am a huge fan of the Saturn 5 am I seen this while looking to buy a replica model. I have recently been involved in a project developing a rocket that will surpass the lift capacity of the Saturn 5.
