A manned giant six-engine aircraft with the world’s longest wingspan – surpassing Howard Hughes’s infamous Spruce Goose – took off from California on its first flight on Saturday. The twin-fuselage Stratolaunch jet lifted off from Mojave air and space port and climbed into the desert sky 70 miles north of Los Angeles. It successfully landed two hours later. The aircraft is designed to carry as many as three satellite-laden rockets under the centre of its enormous wing, which stretches 385ft, or 117 metres

  1. Wonder how long before Jeff Bezos buys it and slaps an "Amazon Prime" sticker on the side.

    At least when he gets divorced again, it'll be easier for the ex to get half the plane…ahh-thank-you.

  2. Congratulations now take it apart in order to comply with the New Green Deal. We had 12 years we’re down to 11. We must conserve oxygen 1 breath an hour per person. You may begin.
