To help you understand what you are looking at, I decided to include this You Tube video.
I had been at EAA Airventure about two hours when my dad pointed out that he could see White Knight Two way down at the other end of the airfield. I didn’t know it at the time because I’m not that familiar with the layout of the airfield at Oshkosh, but White Knight Two sat on runway 27 (two seven) waiting to take-off. We listened as the announcer on the loudspeaker announced Burt Rutan. The chief designer of White Knight One, Mr. Rutan quickly pointed out that he did not design White-Knight Two, which is part of a company owned by Sir Richard Bransom called Virgin Galactic.
The jet-plane portion, without the shuttle hanging from the middle, flew into Oshkosh Monday.
And much to my delight, while Mr. Rutan talked about White Knight Two, it took off.
Circled the airfield several times…
Displaying its power and beauty…
Showed its landing gear to the tower and then landed.
It taxied to where I stood.
Giving me a great look at this powerful jet…
with very beautiful nose-art.
Look closely through the window and you can see the pilot.
That’s the pilot’s hatch.
That’s the owner, Sir Richard Bransom.
