(FOX 11) - Instead of a bang a Colorado pyrotechnic's expert six-year attempt to launch the world's largest aerial fireworks show went up in smoke!
The 62-inch firework was supposed to shoot about a mile into the sky before combusting.
Due to a malfunction it exploded before it left the ground.
The man behind the pyrotechnics isn't giving up.
He plans to try again next year.
