The plane which was said to have been a historic milestone was started at the Mojave Air and Space port in California and cruised the sky for over 2.5 hours.

It reached an altitude of 5,200 meters at a maximum speed of 189 mph. To put the size of this monster plane into perspective, let say if you were to drop the plane on a football pitch, it wings would span would reach across each end zones.

After the test flight, the massive bird finally returned to the ground safely. The airplane was founded in 2011 with a vision for airplane-style access to space, which is good and serves as an alternative to the native ground-based space launch rocket system.🚀
