SpaceShipOne second flight video

4 Oct, 2004

Video shows highlights of the flight to 367,442 feet, including the takeoff with White Knight at the Mojave Space Port, the drop and engine ignition above 46,000 feet, and the touchdown. Pilot Brian Binnie:

We might have gotten to 370,000 feet if my mother-in-law hadn’t spilled about a pound of coffee on me this morning. A little accident added to the drama of the day.
