X-Wing Rocket Launches, Disintegrates Mid-Air

Here's the video of the 21-foot-long X-Wing rocket launching at Plaster City, California, and then desintegrating spectacularly in mid-air.

[UPDATE: new close-up video after the jump.]

Come back later for our exclusive feature, with full video and interviews with the Rebel engineers.
