It flew....

On the weekend I finished up the VLA model and textures, I think it looks sharp in red and white, Also had a quick test flight using the DG configs with the weight bumped up to 125000kg. Boy was it a pig, it needed a speed of 400m/s to takeoff, that's nuts, but it looked real good in orbiter.

some interesting news on the VLA, according to both the CVX and Rutans spaceship2 may have the same mothership(VLA?). But speculation on google groups believes the only differences will be the release height, CVX 30000ft the spaceship2 is believed to be 50000-60000ft altitude.... Interesting

anyways SPACEHAB's Apex has been released and is at orbithanger
