This page is a secondary page containing thumbnail images of various types of rockets, cartridges, Cartridge Actuated Devices (CADs) and Power Acutated Devices (PADs). Each thumbnail is clickable and will bring up a larger version of the photo. This will be a growing document, so please check back periodically for updates.
Note that many of these devices are inert training units, or fired units from seats that were ejected. Typically inert units are painted blue, while active units are painted white with a band of color. It is highly recommended that any rockets on a display seat be painted blue and clearly labeled INERT. No live rockets should be kept for display purposes, and any fired rockets should be treated as live due to the potential for rocket residue being retained. The nozzles on the rockets are normally covered with plastic covers as can be seen in some of these photos. The caps are blown off along with the metal disks that seal the inside of the nozzles. Some of the fired rockets have these covers replaced on them, they would not normally be present. The fired rockets often have damage to their paint jobs or physical damage due to the intense heat and the impact forces involved.
Thanks to the people who have let me use their photos, including Chris Woodul and another good friend who wishes to remain unknown.
