Some of my favorite childhood memories involved flying model rockets. My dad, uncle, and grandfather would build models along with the ones I made, and we would fly them throughout the summer.
Earlier this summer, we invited some friends of ours to fly some rockets with us. They have a young boy about our son’s age. Little did I know, however, is that they had vintage rockets. Original models that have flown hundreds of times.
One of them was the Estes X-Wing Fighter. Coincidently, this was my first rocket my dad and I built when I was 9 years old. Great times.
