This one scared me...a lot!

It was a SEMROC SLS Skyhook.
It spit it's motor at ejection and lawn darted about 4 feet behind Vern Estes!.

There was a clear payload section with a grasshopper in it...it was a "non survivable event".

Vern thought it was funny and he and Carl M. signed it.

What motor was in that SLS Sky Hook ? An E9 I'd venture to guess.
Great that Vern found it funny.

Not an E9, a D12-5 but I don't remember for sure which delay .

My fault really, I didn't double check the engine hook.
