Up, up and away.

Stratolaunch ascends to new heights with successful test of world’s biggest airplane.

Stratolaunch says its mammoth carrier airplane rose to its highest altitude yet during its seventh flight test over California’s Mojave Desert.

The aerospace venture, which was established by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen more than a decade ago but is now owned by a private equity firm, reported a peak altitude of 27,000 feet during today’s test.

If all goes according to plan, the twin-fuselage Roc airplane could begin flying Stratolaunch’s Talon-A hypersonic test vehicles for captive-carry and separation testing as early as this year.

One of the prime objectives for today’s three-hour flight at the Mojave Air and Space Port was to gather data on the aerodynamic characteristics of the plane, including a pylon structure from which the Talon-A vehicles will be released. Roc’s seventh flight came a week after the sixth flight test, which couldn’t achieve all of its objectives.

“Today’s flight is a success story of the Stratolaunch team’s ability to increase operational tempo to the pace desired by our customers for performing frequent hypersonic flight test,” Zachary Krevor, Stratolaunch’s CEO and president, said in a news release. “Furthermore, the team reached a new altitude record of 27,000 feet, thereby demonstrating the aircraft performance needed for our Talon hypersonic vehicle to reach its wide design range of hypersonic conditions.”...
It certainly dwarfs Virgin Galactic's White Knight Two.

Cheers.

I did not believe how many stupid car drivers, diy and dishonest garages there are. And some just barely miss a Darwin Award.

It's just amazing there aren't more crashes then there are due to issues with a vehicle.


And that "right indicator doesn't work" problem- i always thought people putting tape over the check engine light was just a lame joke...

He tried for a Darwin Award while trying to escape from police, but he failed on both accounts.
