No no no no no! It was screaming down on its intended target! Mayhem and carnage was sure to rein heavily on this fateful day! By the grace of Eirene (Greek god of peace), tragedy was averted due to an otherwise impossible malfunction in the targeting system.

Come on, man!

The response from tbzep above was far more entertaining.
Powr-Prangs that don't cause any human/animal injuries or impacts to MY vehicle are hilarious (unless MY rocket).
And NO, I wouldn't have my Corvette anywhere near a rocket launch.

Mayhem and carnage might have reigned in Rocket Rohde's underpants. That's him between the cars.

I went with a friend to NSL in Alamogordo in 2017. He was out retrieving one of his rockets a few hundred yards from pads, when a new series of launches started. He wisely turned to watch. A rocket rose then turned horizontal and was streaking directly towards him. He stood frozen in position for a few seconds, then jumped to the side. That rocketís path went directly toward where he was standing, but in retrospect was probably high enough off the ground that it would have missed him.
Lots of people were yelling at him to move. Scary, and funny, too, to watch him jump at the last second. No word from him on any mayhem and carnage in the under garments.
