The aviation blog, FlightGlobal, reports that Virgin Galactic's WhiteKnightTwo, mothership for SpaceShipTwo, achieved a significant milestone when it performed a low-speed taxi-test on Mojave (California) Airport's Runway 30 on Friday afternoon, December 12. The aircraft, which is slated to appear at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2009, powered to the end of the runway, turned around, and powered back to its hangar at Scaled Composites. The blog also includes a short video showing the twin-hulled, four-engine aircraft moving under its own power.
