There goes the XCOR EZ-Rocket!  It sounds like a jet except there is no spool-up when it starts (duh!).  It just starts up full blast with a loud pop.  Dick Rutan is at the controls.

OK, now I have to get to AeroShell Square for sure because they will be towing the EZ-Rocket right through that area when the demo flight is over.  Thankfully, I'm only a block or so from AeroShell Square now.  By the way, the length of the EZ-Rocket demo flight is about two minutes because the thing can only hold 2 1/2 minutes of fuel!
