Feature: World’s Largest Plane
There is a new plane and evidently it is the world’s largest plane.
The world’s largest plane has flown to the Mojave desert and in California.
Designed by Strato-launch, it is designed to act as a launch pad and that for satellites.
The wingspan of the plane measures 385ft (117m) and it is on a maiden flight that reaches new heights and that too off 170 mph.
Stratolaunch was built by Paul Allen and in 2011.
The prime purpose of the plane is to let it act as a flying launch pad for the satellites.
The purpose of the plane is to fly to a new 10km (6.2) miles before it releases to satellites and orbits.
If the project’s aim is successful, then it will be a cheaper way to make bran new objects in space; to use it rather than getting objects from the ground.
The person who flew the plane was Evan Thomas; and while talking to the reporters, he said that the experience was quite fantastic.
Interestingly, the plane performed really well and the airplane flew as shown.
Stratolaunch described it as a vessel and it is considered as the world’s largest plane in the world.
