Smile I learn something new everyday

https://estesrockets.com/about-us/

I noticed Estes-Cox was now Estes Industries, LLC

so I used some of my google fu and I found the above.

Isn't Ellis Langford, John Langford's son?

I also see that Bill Stine is VP....

I also found out that Langford Industries, LLC is the parent company of Estes Industries, LLC

+1 to what Bernard said above.
We got the C5-3 back as a result of the new leadership.
Now hoping for the B14 or B8.

Cool

I seem to rise from the dead every 10 years or so...it's really amazing how much has changed....so many websites and people gone...been using the wayback machine overtime lately.

You know you've been gone for awhile when you do web searches on topics and one of the results is something you posted 12 years ago .!

See I didn't even know that. If they've made a C5 then hopefully a B8 isn't too far behind.
