Virgin Galactic’s Third Powered Flight

On the 10th of January 2014, Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShipTwo completed it’s third powered test flight. In command on the flight deck for the first time under rocket power was Virgin Galactic’s Chief Pilot Dave Mackay.

Richard Branson said: “I couldn’t be happier to start the New Year with all the pieces visibly in place for the start of full space flights. 2014 will be the year when we will finally put our beautiful spaceship in her natural environment of space.”
