Plaster City Rockets


A few weeks back I went out to record the rockets of D.A.R.T.  They are the Diego Area Rocket Team (DART) D.A.R.T., a chartered section of the National Association of Rocketry, was founded in Des Moines, Iowa and relocated to San Diego in the late 1960’s.  They were nice enough to fire a bunch or rockets in relative silence so a colleague and I could get some very clean recordings.This rocket is a I254 Motor recorded with a DPA 4060 mounted just a few feet away from the launch pad. Thanks to Mike Jerauld of DART for his patience and flexibility
