Scaled Composites Model 348 White Knight Two

@ Edwards AFB, Mojave, CA

October 2009

The Open House Airshow at Edwards AFB is always worthwhile due to the possible appearance of some unique aircraft based locally.  The 2009 show was the last one I attended and gave me an opportunity to photograph White Knight Two in flight as it made a flyby before landing.   First flown in 2008, WK2 is the carrier aircraft for SpaceShipTwo.  Together, WK2 and SS2 form the basis for Virgin Galactic’s fleet of suborbital spaceplanes. Nikon D300 w/80-200mm, processed with Aperture.
