Colorado man's attempt to launch world-record aerial fireworks show fails

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.
