WhiteKnightTwo Departs for Oshkosh

WhiteKnightTwo lifted off for its first cross-continent flight this morning, departing Mojave at 7:16 am local for its public (re)debut at the EAA AirVenture air show in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.

With plenty of gas onboard, pilot Pete Siebold and co-pilot Clint Nichols brought Eve around for a low pass down runway 26, in front of a small crowd of Scaled Composites employees before climbing up to 52,900 feet for the 4:36 flight.
