    "in-flight anomaly" is to Virgin as "major malfunction" is to NASA.

    One of the pilots is dead.
    The other is critical.

    From the sound of it, the flight controls malfunctioned and the aircraft literally came apart.

    It looks like the engine exploded and destroyed the flight control structures of the aircraft.

    They probably used the same vendor who made the solid rocket booster seals for NASA.

    cnn just had a lady on who has been reporting on this for years.

    she's pissed. she's saying that the pilot is dead because virgin sucks and that virgin knew that the engine would never get anyone into space. :dontknow:


    she said the engine started, cut out and a second later automatically tried to start up again which caused the explosion. called it a hard start.
