SAC staff celebrated the 1998 Year of Science and Technology with the launch of a variety of model rockets. The front runners among SAC’s model builders were Frikkie Meyer, Pieter Sevenhuysen and Joe Schiller.
Onlookers showed a keen interest as the three-man team made critical adjustments to their rockets as they readied them on the launch pad before lift-off. The crowd waited in anticipation for the count- down and saw the rockets perform faultlessly during lift-off.
“Once again, attention to detail paid off. We proved our rocket building and launch procedure prowess with faultless precision. We had no choice but to get it right – there was SAC’s reputation to think of.”
