Amateurs from Haarlem launch a self-built rocket at the military training ground near Petten with the permission from the Ministry of War. The builder mixes the fuel and pours it into the rocket. The electrical detonator doesn't work, igniting the rocket with magnesium doesn't work either and the last resort, butane gas, lets the rocket explode, in which one person gets slightly injured.
