Steel body with welded steel bar stock, sat spewing sparks for a minute, took off 10ft and bounced off a tree, then went up 20ft and "dropped like a dead bird"
built like Auk II and twirled up, twanged off a maple tree, and thudded into side of the mountain
"whoosh" down the mountain, barely missed the mine, landed in coal dust beside the railroad track and took a chunk out of a brick building
Nozzle was more shaped, shot three weeks after Ike died hot flame spurted from bottom as it leapt off the base leaving a white trail, went 4100ft
