SpaceShipTwo performs second glide test

The first SpaceShipTwo vehicle, VSS Enterprise, performed a glide test this morning in the skies above the Mojave Air and Space Port in California, according to observers as well as Virgin Galactic. No details about the flight test, other than that it was successful, have been released, although when more details are available they’ll likely be included in the SS2 flight log at Scaled.

Update: the log has been updated, noting that all test objectives were achieved. Highlights include: “Flew to more aggressive stall indication. Evaluated handling and stability through several maneuvers.”
