It is just amazing to see this bomber in this refueling video. Either from a KC-10 or KC-135, I don’t know. As it comes into view, it just keeps getting bigger and bigger, dominating the scene. What an impressive sight.
First captive carry flight of the Virgin Galactic sub-orbital rocket powered glider VSS Enterprise by the “Eve” mother-ship. “Eve” has a wingspan over 140′ making it the longest single carbon fiber component ever produced. The mother-ship wing is almost 20 feet longer than a Boeing 757.
Beautiful visual corkscrew flight path of Sean Tucker’s Oracle Challenger.
On June 30th, the FAA will no longer issue “Taxi To” Clearances for runway assignments. Pilots won’t be able to receive a clearance with the expectation to taxi to the departure runway and be allowed to cross all runways en route. All runway crossings now will be accompanied by a specific clearance to either hold short or cross for each runway. Runways that are less than 1000′ apart may be given a single clearance.
