That is the oddest scene for a mounted rocket artifact I have even seen. So accessible? Rural park? Interesting.

Only in 'merica (and maybe Russia).

Definitely maybe Russia. I once posed for a photo under a Buran (Soviet shuttle knockoff) that was sitting on the river walk, next to a roller coaster, in Gorky Park.

Definitely going to be a "tall" challenge for us Canadians...🤣

I had to google one... but a bit to far of a drive for me. Best of luck everyone!! (y)

I know of one on a miniature golf course nearby, but it isn't exactly AT accessible. Maybe I could convince them that this is my golf cart? :)

An ice cream shop nearby has a "rocket," but it is a stylized one. 1950's sci-fi. Not sure if that would be acceptable or not. But it is about 50' tall and was originally an art installation piece for Burning Man :)

Otherwise, a large statue of a model rocket at the Estes Model Rocket plant in Penrose, CO. But that's a bit of a haul :)

If I had the day off I'd go to Hutchinson Kansas to the cosmosphere, there's a BIG rocket there!

There's a place in Houston and Florida that have the biggest rocket displays to my knowledge 😉

Wish we were able to travel, it would have been a nice road trip 😉

Yeah me too and i think the article I was reading said they were taking it down due to corrosion, and was from 6 years ago 🤣
This is gonna be a tough one. Do wooden models count?! Lol 😆
