First flying models I ever built were 12" span sheet & tissue rubber models made by local producer Aeroflyte. I had quite fleet consisting of Cessna 140, Auster, Mustang, a cute little bipe called a Guppy and others I don't remember. Anyway, one day I got a lttle bored with winding and winding and winding the rubber motor. (Only had my finger).
I decided to tape 2 small sky rockets to the wing of the Cessna. Tried to light them as close together as I could and quickly launched it into a glide before ignition. One fired momentarily before the other and gave the wing enough of a tweek to break the glue joint of the wing. The fuselage plunged to the ground and the wing took off too fast to see, except when the confetti started fluttering down. I guess balsa doesn't handle "JATO" too well.

Great story Rod!  As a kid I was always looking for a way to put various rockets to work...seemed a shame and waste to just point all that perfectly good rocket thrust into the sky to explode  !
