Quoted @virgingalactic

Highlights from this week’s VMS Eve flights in New Mexico. During a spaceflight, VMS Eve acts as a mothership and carries SpaceShipTwo Unity to release altitude. These were routine flights for our pilots to complete regular proficiency checks.

These VMS Eve flights mean a lot to me. My mum always supported every idea of mine and she lives on in everything we do – after all, you can’t have a mothership without naming it after your mother. Great to see you flying high, VMS Eve.

Our mothership, VMS Eve, will be conducting a flight from Spaceport America, New Mexico, today and another tomorrow. Today’s pilots will be CJ Sturckow and Dave Mackay. They will be using VMS Eve to simulate SpaceShipTwo Unity’s glide and approach-to-land phase.

After an inspiring inauguration showcasing the power of unity, including @TheAmandaGorman's stunning poem, it's great to see @POTUS immediately putting words into action, rejoining the Paris climate accord & tackling COVID-19. A new day in America, indeed

This is the incredible moment @Virgin_Orbit flew into orbit. What a beautiful sight to behold: the Virgin LauncherOne rocket taking off from the wing of our 747 airplane and soaring into orbit at 17,500mph to drop off satellites

Today's sequence of events for #LaunchDemo2 went exactly to plan, from safe execution of our ground ops all the way through successful full duration burns on both engines. To say we're thrilled would be a massive understatement, but 240 characters couldn't do it justice anyway.
