BREAKING NEWS!!! Virgin Galactic Spaceship Crashes In California

GALACTIC 2Virgin Galactic has said that its SpaceShipTwo rocket plane suffered an “in-flight anomaly” during a powered test flight today Friday which resulted in the loss of the aircraft.

GALACTIC-TWTThe suborbital flight took off at 9:19am PDT from the Mojave Air and Spaceport in California. There were two pilots aboard and their status is still unknown. The company said in a statement:

“During the test, the vehicle suffered a serious anomaly resulting in the loss of the vehicle.  The WhiteKnightTwo carrier aircraft landed safely. Our first concern is the status of the pilots, which is unknown at this time.”

Two pilots fly in SpaceShipTwo’s cockpit during a test. Those pilots are equipped with parachutes, and after the anomaly, chutes were reportedly sighted over the Mojave Air and Space Port in California, the base from which SpaceShipTwo and its WhiteKnightTwo carrier plane took off.

Photographer Ken Brown, who was covering the test flight, told NBC News that he saw a midflight explosion and later came upon SpaceShipTwo debris scattered across a small area of the desert.

I pray they are safe. More details later.
