I couldn't even imagine. I thought the C6-5 was the be-all and end-all of high power.

[QUOTE=. I immediately replaced the D mount with an E mount and flew it with a full 18" parachute. Once.
I still remember watching it float out of VOA. I felt like Henry Blake watching his antique desk head to Tokyo on the helicopter. [/QUOTE]

Bill,
Hah hah! That is a classic episode.

Few I enjoyed more. I did like the one where the latrine blew up with Henry inside.

"Boom!"

Another is Klinger in full fem regalia and M-1 telling the General before he about faces

and skips away - "Then I'll just have to keep trying Mary". So funny!

There were tons of great scenes in the show. In addition to what's been mentioned, a couple that come to mind are when Klinger was pole sitting for his section 8 and Potter made him stay up there to set a record. Anytime Radar was near scantily clad women was funny, probably the best was when he had to go into the shower to get Margaret (or maybe all the nurses, I can't remember for sure). I also liked the episode where he mailed home a Jeep.

That was one of those shows where every time I watched an episode that I'd already seen, I caught something I missed before. I usually can't stand to watch reruns. They bore me. However MASH is one of a handful I could watch over and over.

My first flight of a Cherokee-D was a D12-5 and 18” chute. I did get it back, after a 45 minute walk. At the old CRASH launch site in Denver, the field is bordered WAY to the east, where a monstrous pile of rock (mini boulders) cover the slope. Fortunately it hit the slope, instead of going past the dam. No climbing allowed, and I probably would not do it anyway. I walked the road to get to the top, then along the dam (d@mn?) road, and carefully climbed down the rock face a bit to reach it.

I switched to a 12” chute after that! The only worse combination was the Astron Drifter on the supplied 24” chute. (Given the choice of 24” or the 12” chute also in the kit, what kid wouldn’t use the 24” chute?)
That was my 2nd rocket as a kid, and it just climbed and climbed after chute deployment, never to be seen again. Heartbreaking!

As a matter of fact, I did. Thanks so much for asking!

Here I am, on top of the dam, looking down upon the rocks, with the launch site in the distance.

This is the famous launch site at Bear Creek Lake State Park, Morrison Colorado. Famous Red Rocks Amphitheater is in the hills about 5 miles away (more north, that shot is aiming southwest.) The city bureaucrats (Lakewood) decided that rockets create too much noise, despite maybe 30 years of CRASH flying there, and probably no complaints. This launch site out in the middle of nowhere in that park.

Too much info?
