    Hope all those launch technicians are getting Hardship Duty Pay. But if not there is lots of king crab, salmon, and halibut to make up for the stormy weather.

      Hardship duty pay? Kodiak Island would be a magnificent duty station… at least I would consider it magnificent. Years ago I went on a camping trip to Alaska with my younger son. I remember sitting on a hillock out on the tundra and just feeling the natural magic of the place. I experienced Robert Service’s poetry without reading a word.

        TTG –

        You might be right. Per wikipedia it looks like they get less annual rainfall than I do here on the Washington coast.

        And some of the local Coasties I have met here and from their Air Station in Astoria yearn to return there, even though they complain of the unpredictable weather patterns on the island.

    Well that was a strange launch, reminded me of some of the old V2 test footage. Right at lift off the rocket tilted significantly, righted itself and then crabbed sideways off the pad before getting clean away. The “anomaly” before the 3 minute mark looked like uncontrollable tumbling judging by the camera shots before they cut away. Better luck next time.

    I like Steely-eyed Missile Bear.
