- Monterey, VA -- The Fishburne Military School Rocketeers braved a cold day on Saturday to launch their Team America Rocketry Challenge (TARC) rockets at the Valley AeroSpace Team (VAST) launch site Monterey, Virginia. "In fact, one of the launches was a perfect 800 ft with a perfect flight time of 43 seconds. We have never done that before. There can be no higher score in TARC," noted CPT Galloway.
