Default Space X Falcon Heavy

I was lucky enough to be in Titusvile, FL when the first Falcon Heavy took to the wild blue yonder.

Yes, you were lucky. I don't know were Titusville is but it looks like it's close to KSC. I always wanted to see a space shuttle launch and never made it.

Well it was a first of its kind. A rocket that wasnt government funded. And it worked as good as or better than the others. Great shots.

Thanks for looking Lomitamike & Bynx. Titusville is right next to the Cape . . . The town became really run down after the Space Shuttle program was shut down, but with Space X and NASA both working hard, the town has come back to life.
