WINKLEMAN, Ariz. (AP) -- A California man is going back to the drawing board after his steam-powered rocket misfired in the Arizona desert during his latest effort to set a record.Mike Hughes was scheduled to blast off Saturday from a remote area near Winkleman. But he says the X-2 SkyLimo Rocket launched prematurely when some seals gave way.Without Hughes in the cockpit, the parachutes failed to deploy. The rocket ended up in a crumpled mess about a half-mile away.Hughes says he's devastated but promised to rebuild the rocket for another launch in British Columbia in late August.He had hoped to travel some 1,700 feet Saturday. He made a similar flight in January that he says went 1,374 feet.Hughes holds the Guinness Book of World Records mark for the longest limo jump at 103 feet, set Sept. 28, 2002.© 2014 The Associated Press.
