Funny how a good bit of news comes out and noone wants to talk. I wonder what the forum will be like when first vertical landing happens in a upcoming weeks. Golf clap?

ONE (and counting) - "the aircraft must complete a series of as many as a dozen flights before attempting its first vertical landing."

"Good news" is now defined as "we got it done, a mere year or so later than we predicted 18 months ago".

It's good to see some good news from this program. I'm sick of all the naysayers and doubters complaining about this program all the time. It's gonna get done and it will be everything they said it will be. Then the whiners and doubters can finally shut up!
