Tomcat on the launch pad Tomcat taking a nose dive Tomcat stuck in the ground

After spending three different days balancing my Estes Tomcat, this is what happened on its maiden flight. Clockwise starting at the top left: 1. The Tomcat on the launch pad ready for flight. 2. The Tomcat coming in fast. 3. The aftermath of the flight. Its right wing is the only damage to the rocket. I have since repaired the rocket and will fly it again.
