The mechanisms which allow wings of carrier airplanes to fold for storage while allowing them to dogfight in the air seem amazing.

I was on an international committee to write the SAE standards for the Mil-Std-1760 Stores Interface for the ATF (F-22).

It is an amazing aircraft with performance that will prove to be exceptional in combat.

Is this the one built to carry rockets for launch?

Another view, the idea died when Paul Allen died.  While Stratolaunch calls its aircraft the world's largest, other airplanes exceed it in length from nose to tail. They include the six-engine Antonov AN 225 cargo plane, which is 275.5 feet long, and the Boeing 747-8, which is just over 250 feet long.

Stratolaunch, a giant six-engine aircraft with the world’s longest wingspan , makes its historic first flight from the Mojave Air and Space Port in Mojave, Calif., Saturday, April 13, 2019.
