I remember Air B0mb repeaters, yeah. As a single-tube air b0mb, they were banned from Jan 1st 2004. Unfortanly due to its low cost and noise they were a popular item for misuse.

OK, interest in fireworks to be resumed in the spring. It usually is. ;)

Mm. I wish they would ban those here, nationally. Why? Because people do abuse them, and councils of cities don't know enough about fireworks to distinguish one from another, meaning bans and generalizing blankets on all kinds of fireworks.

Speaking of Air B**Bs, can anyone remember the 'Thunder King' by Blackcat ? Man they were loud, and if IIRC they didn't travel that high when the salute fired :ph34r:

Thunder King was a fantastic item - a nice strong green on the way up, and exploding at approx 25 feet - immensely loud! I miss those.

I don't remember the colour, but I do remember Brocks Bazooka, which were indeed very loud! Perhaps it's those you refer to? Cosmic did one around the same time too which was pretty loud, and most noticeably had a very powerful lift to it. Dark blue or purple label, pink 'end-spitting' fuse, I think.

I don't use Cat 4 myself, but apparantly the classic Air B0mb repeater (multi-shot, long then Roman candle style) is still sold as a Cat 4 item.

I also have some air b0mb dummies in my dummy collection (literally empty tubes with fake fuse, not de-activated or used fireworks). The packaging is accurate etc.

ahhh, found a picture from the fireworks museum website :) yep red with a side fuse bazooka ?

great cutaway detail for the "constructor" :) also i am guilty of misusing these once in my younger days i discovered that by using a spent tube from a previously fired bazooka taped to the top of a new one you would get a "super duper extra high bazooka"
