Michael Raphael has published a very cool post on his blog Field Sepulchra, taking about a little misadventure he had recently when he was recording amateur rockets for the amazing library of Rabbit Ears Audio.
What you’re hearing is a “land shark.” Also known as a rocket that has malfunctioned, landed on the ground, ignited, and then started to head toward a group of people at a very high speed. If you listen carefully at the :11 mark, you can hear the rocketry organization’s president yelling, “We got a land shark! We got a land shark.”
What are those misadventures and funny/strange experiences you’ve had when recording sounds?
