Notice How the Flying Fish "Swim" in the Sky

Fireworks mines are a type of firework that shoots flaming balls, fuse, stars, comets, or inserts up from the ground into the sky. Versus aerial shells which are fireworks which are first launched into the sky and then explode.

You get all the parts needed to make 10 Flying Fish Mines except for the lift charge. You supply the black powder (or a substitute) lifting charge and some glue. Everything else you need is included in the kit.

Each kit contains:
- Flying Fish Fuse, 90 ft (#GN1035 and GN1025)
- #0 Mortar Tubes, 10 (#TU2053)
- #0 Plastic Mortar Bases, 10 (#PL3001)
- Visco Fuse, 3/32-inch, 20 feet (#GN1006)
- 1-1/2 Inch Square Paper Plugs, 15 (#PS2001)

For the lift powder to propel the flying fish fuse out of your mine, use any grade of black powder. If you don't have any, this is one of the rare situations where you can use smokeless powder or black powder substitutes (easy to find at guns stores).

Or you can make your own hand-mixed, "green" powder using potassium nitrate, sulfur, and charcoal.
