WhiteKnightTwo completes 150th successful flight

Take a look as Virgin Galactic’s WhiteKnightTwo reaches yet another milestone...

Here you can see the moment WhiteKnightTwo glides through the skies, high above the desert below, during its latest test flight. It was the 150th time the aircraft had successfully completed a flight, quite a feat!

It wasn’t just any old crew which took to the skies in WhiteKinightTwo last week for the landmark flight, it was the very first crew made up of exclusively Virgin Galactic employees.

In fact, all of the ground crew and mission controllers, as well as pilots, were part of the Galactic crew (below).
