Paul Allen Plane

Paul Allen stated that Stratolaunch’s carrier aircraft would have a wingspan of 385-feet, or about 20-feet longer than an Apollo-era Saturn V and about half as long as the Hindenburg class airships.

It will weigh in at over 1.2-million-pounds including the fully fueled launch vehicle and be powered by six 46,000-66,500 lbf thrust-range jet engines, that are planned to be sourced from two used 747-400s that will be cannibalized for engines, avionics, flight deck, landing gear and other proven systems that can be recycled to cut development costs.” Click here to view the first image in today’s viral picture gallery.
