A water rocket is a type of model rocket using water as its reaction mass. The pressure vessel (the engine of the rocket) is constructed from thin plastic or other non metallic materials (usually a used plastic soft drink bottle) weighing 1,500 grams or less. The water is forced out by compressed air. It is an example of Newton's third law of motion.

While attempting to set a new WRA2 world altitude record U.S. Water Rockets' X-12 water rocket crashes from an altitude of 1819 feet. The crash damaged the rocket and destroyed the camera. This video was recovered from the flash memory removed from the ruins of the onboard camers. Flight date October 29, 2005

I remember this one from your WRN website. Did you ever find out what happened to the parachute?
