Under no circumstances should anyone ever trespass on any flying field outside of an active launch event. Never trespass on any surrounding field ever. If a rocket lands off the flying field, MDRA will try to seek proper permission whenever possible to retrieve rockets. Violators will be prosecuted by local authorities and can face expulsion from MDRA.
