N17 Name: N17, Tintin rocket
Type: Tintin rocket
Motor: 1 AeroTech I284-W
2 AeroTech H180-W
Launch: NLD7, ASK 't Harde, 23 August 1996

This Tintin rocket was built by Chiel Klein. The N17 is an exception in the N-series, as it is in fact an High Power Rocket, which normally do not get a N-registration, but this one was very special and the first HPR rocket launched at a NLD. The rocket was completely built from scratch and 1290mm (ca. 4 feet) in length! It had a great flight, which you could follow all the way. In some documents the rocket was also allocated the N18 number, to add to the confusion (see below).
