Duane was accompanied by his recently-repaired Geezer TARC rocket, the yellow and black "Beast." I love the Beast - big and robust, it's the archetypical TARC rocket. We use it as a set piece in our TARC recruitment talks because it just screams TARC. It also flies well - today's flight was arrow straight on a Aerotech F50, with a good recovery in the field.
