Virgin Galactic have confirmed that last week saw yet another successful glide flight take place, with pilots Dave Mackay and Mark Stucky demonstrating SpaceShipTwos unique feather mechanism as pictured above.

The news comes hot on the heels of Julys celebrated test glide, as well as the recent supersonic test flight when Virgin Galactic broke the speed of sound in their very first rocket powered flight.
