Testing of Reinhold Tiling's 120 cm model rocket in July, 1929, at Arenshorst and on August 29, 1929, in a demonstration for the Navy, at Meppen, Germany.
Reinhold Tiling working with his coworker, Karl Poggensee,at his workshop in Arenshorst, Germany, where he developed compressed powder fuel for his post office rocket. View of hydraulic press Tiling made himself, inside the workshop. Several photos of the buildings, workshop, and schematic drawings. Rocket being tested on stand outside the shop. Diagrams of test result data. Interior of the workshop with several model rockets, in 1929. Diagram of the rocket showing how fins extend to allow undamaged return of the rocket to earth. Picture of the first rocket successfully launched in 1928, showing its fin-wings extended.
A man holds two rockets. The one shown on the left with the white nose is a double rocket. (These were demonstrated for the Navy at Meppen.) Flag flying over a cabin (named "Arenshorst," by Reinhard Tiling) as rocket firing trials get underway on the island of Wangerooge in the North Sea,during December 1930. Reinhard Tiling emergea from the cabin, carrying a long slender rocket . His assistant Angela Buddenboehmer, and another man (possibly Richard Tiling) follow him across the sand dunes. Two photographers are present and several other men. Tiling inserts the rocket into a launch frame already set up. The team elevates the launcher and Tiling makes some adjustment. At a signal from Tiling, Angela Buddenboehmer pushes a plunger on the ignition control box and the rocket fires and rises. Reinhard Tiling, Buddenboehmer, and Richard Tiling watch it in the sky. Several more launches are shown. Pictures of rocket projectile missiles being launched at Dummersee on April 15, 1931, and of larger missiles at later times.

An Eisfeld-Valier-Rak-1 sledge test driven in February, 1929 on the Eibsee lake, Bavaria, Germany. Men fit rocket boosters in the unmanned sledge. The sledge stands in snow. Spectators watch nearby. A man lights a fuse and steps away. Rockets ignite and propel the sledge across the lake surface with considerable fire and smoke. The experimenters run to the sledge and extinguish smoking rockets by throwing snow on them.
