The Fulmar was a two-stage British elevator research rocket. The Fulmar, developed by Bristol Aero Jet, consisted of a Heron starting stage with 107 kN thrust and a Snipe upper stage with 16.7 kN thrust. The Fulmar had a diameter of 26 centimetres and a length of 7.47 metres. It weighed 500 kilograms at launch and could reach a height of 250 kilometres. The Fulmar was fired six times between 1976 and 1979 at Andoya; the last launch, on March 19, 1979, failed. More
