4th Fest Preparation 009

Members of the pyrotechnics committee and fire protection crews watch as one of the first shells explodes during the launch test, held on Tuesday, June 29, at the launch area located just east of Beaver Stadium and Medlar Field at Lubrano Park. A sample of each kind of shell was launched one by one and timed during the test. Timing data was achieved via the time-code from high-speed video footage, which will be used to double-check the choreography for Sunday's show.
