After Paul Allen’s death, Stratolaunch cuts sharply back — but giant plane will still fly

Paul Allen’s Stratolaunch aircraft has moved out of its hangar for the first time to conduct aircraft fueling tests. The company says the aircraft is the world’s largest plane by wingspan, measuring 385 feet, and stands 50 feet tall from the ground to the top of the vertical tail.

Three months after the death of Paul Allen, Stratolaunch, the space plane company he founded, announced Friday that it will sharply cut back its ambitions, ending the development of a planned family of launch vehicles and a rocket engine and laying off most of its workforce.  WATCH
