Pretty pictures: Gliding flight for SpaceShipTwo
I post these for no other reason than that they are just breathtaking. I've seen these two lovely aircraft up close, but it's another thing entirely to see them in the sky. Especially to see SpaceShipTwo gliding free of WhiteKnightTwo. The pictures were taken during a test flight on April 3; Virgin Galactic shared them on their Facebook page yesterday. SpaceShipTwo has still not been tested in powered flight.
