# <a name="Recovery Design for LV2.1"></a> Recovery Design for LV2.1

The recovery system that was sucessfully used for the maiden flight of LV2.1 in September 2002 was a parachute that Brian made several years before, a collection of shroud lines and bridals that Brian had obtained, a recovery bag designed by Maggie and Brian, and a drogue chute that was commercially purchased.

During the flight of LV2.2 in September of 2003, this recovery system was destroyed.

In September 2004, a launch of LV2.1 is planned, and so we are tasked with finding a new recovery system.

**Interesting stuff**
