You know what they say about ultra-complex rocket testing? It's like buses: you don't have one for ages, then two come along at once!
Virgin Galactic have reported a successful SpaceShipTwo test flight and a full duration rocket motor test firing - on the same day!
The team wrote on Facebook: "SpaceShipTwo's glide flight was her first in quite some time, coming after a period of inspection, maintenance, and planned modifications."
Head over to Virgin Galactic to see more photos from the testing.
Meanwhile, Virgin Galactic are gearing up for a special appearance at Farnborough International Airshow.
