It's a lifting body. It's not that big honestly.

Dream Chaser

They did a captive carry test today. They attach a sling line to the top, and hoist it below a civilian CH-47. They circle around, slowly going higher as the test goes on.

That's one of the things it's supposed to be for, is lifting spacecraft and act as the first stage. So it just might.

I'm hoping they'll start taxi tests with Stratolaunch soon. I want to see if it moves.

Got lucky today. We weren't supposed to go past Edwards this run. SNC announced the captive carry test yesterday evening, so I food some quick calculations, and if we changed our route to go past Edwards, we'd shave 20 miles off the actual miles.

With those massive 6 engines I reckon it'll move fine I wouldn't want to be on it on the 1st flight though haha

This is one of the pictures SNC posted. This is how they do a captive carry test.

I THINK Green Flag is on this week.

No, we're between Green Flags right now. Last one for the year starts the 8th. He's playing with something else.

They should be either just about done, or ATAC is stood down while they figure out why their Hunter went into the water.
