Operation Pushover at LC-35

Page 4 of 19
First Previous Next Last Home Page

      The photo above shows the second, and last in the operation pushover series.  The rocket is setting on a four legged launch pedestal on the simulated deck.  During the test, the rocket motor was ignited, but before it sequenced to full thrust, two of the pedestal legs, which had been rigged with explosives, were blown out from under the rocket.  This caused the rocket to tip over on the simulated deck and explode.
