Winged Launch Facility redesign

15 08 2009

Following initial tests, AIA have decided to revert back to an earlier design of the blast deflection shielding end of the Winged Launch Facility.  The design is arguably more complex, but contains the launch blast more efficiently.  It can also apply the sound suppression system to better effect.  (Plus I think it looks cooler! I wasn’t happy with the look of it previosuly).

Here are shots of the new design, showing it in Clear and Launch Ready configurations.
