Interesting as the airplane with the largest-ever wingspan of 117 m (385 ft), this vehicle was designed as the carrier for a range of space launch systems, funded primarily by the late Paul Allen, co-founder of Microsoft. Whilst exploring a wide range of technical innovations since 2010, the program has encountered difficulties in achieving all of its goals and there are current rumours that the program may be grounded after a single flight.
