Test Flight 5

Test Flight #5 launched on July 10th, 2014 from Capital View Park, in Frankfort Kentucky. Seconds after launch, you can see the great view the vehicle had of the Kentucky State Capital and the Kentucky River.  As the vehicle ascended it traveled west, down the I64 corridor at about 45 mile per hour, ground speed—deploying ashes in the vicinity of Paris, KY at just above 80K ft. Two minutes after ash deployment, it began its descent and eventually landed in a cow pasture near Sharpsburg, KY.  Again, all systems performed perfectly.
