Casey Andre brought out his Big Nuke for June. Casey's Nuke has flown a number of times at the Dragon's Fire Field and has been featured in previous launch reports as a reliable show pleaser. See this page for more.....
While we don't have any parachute pictures of Sam Bartle's Big Nuke, Sam was able to recover it and complete his Level 2 Certification.
Nice Job Sam!

Recovery was easier than in May and didn't require any drone assistance.
