The Stratolaunch aircraft comes in for a landing after its first successful flight. The massive dual-fuselage plane has a combined wingspan of 385 feet (117 metres), which may not allow it to travel very fast (max speed of 280km/h) but does enable it to reach the remarkable peak altitude of 35 000 feet (10600m).
The grand plan: Eventually, the hope is that the plane will be able to fly about two or three times higher than commercial jets, before it releases satellites into orbit.
The Mojave Air & Space Port is located in California (the "Golden State") and is the first site which is licensed to horizontally launch reusable spacecraft from.
As part of the initial flight, the pilots evaluated aircraft performance and handling qualities before landing successfully back at the Mojave Air and Space Port, Stratolaunch said in a statement.
He added: "Today's flight furthers our mission to provide a flexible alternative to ground launched systems". "We are incredibly proud of the Stratolaunch team, today's flight crew, our partners at Northrup Grumman's Scaled Composites and the Mojave Air and Space Port".
Last month, Boeing and federal officials said privately that the company would finish a software fix before the end of March. Southwest is already canceling about 90 flights a day because its 34 Max jets have been grounded since mid-March.
