Virgin 'spaceship' pilot 'unlocked tailbooms' going through sound barrier

Anonymous Coward


Being a test-pilot is a risky job; getting into space is a dangerous task. Its sad that there was one death and one seriously injured, I doubt it was deliberate and whatever happened, we will find out later after the report is completed.

However, even if its a "fair-ground ride" it has its role in pushing the boundries and I would still like to use the Service (if I could afford it) as I dont see anyother way of getting up there before I get too old.

A beer for the test pilots, they deserve it.
