Some bad news, Dan, Daren...launching the Phantom saturday, and the bungee, for some reason did not dis-engage. It smaked nose down and broke the nose into pieces. Completely repairable. It broke only part way up the cockpit bay. But I'll need to get another glass nose for it.

Surprising, that was the only amount of damage. Light jets crash better! I think I figure out what happened. The ring attached to the hook was OK. The Tag line from the pedal shot forward and snagged the lower radome, below the nose piece. I need to attach a drag cloth to the pedal tag line for drag.
