      The New Carrier Aircraft from Stratolaunch Systems had his Rollout:

      http://www.stratolaunch.com/gallery.html

      This plane has a Wingspan of 117m/ 385ft.

      It will worked like Virgin Galatics Spaceship Two but much bigger. This for transports in low earth Orbit.

      I was sure the 4 cockpit flat windows and the main gears (747's body gears) looked very 747, it appears it is the case, many components were used from 2 ex-UA 747-400s. Even the rudders look similar to the ones from the 747. What an exciting project !
