Airborne 02.03.21: Starship Blows Landing, Mandatory Masks, Virgin Galactic

Finally; the FAA gave SpaceX clearance to fly Starship SN9 in the second such test of a higher altitude flight -- this time to 10 KM, with a re-entry transition and final reorientation for landing... and again, SN9 got almost all of it right…

Almost. This time, it appears that in the final transition to the landing attitude and reignition of two Raptor engines, that one not only didn't fire up properly but video suggests it may have come apart, as debris was  clearly seen near the descending machine right after reignition. SN9 hit the deck at a high rate of speed and inclined some 45 degrees off axis and offered the usual fiery explosion, post-impact. The NATA has broken down the current issues involved with being compliant with the new mask mandate sweeping through our transportation systems.... including BizAv and a fair amount of GA. The CDC issued an order requiring travelers to wear masks when entering the premises of a transportation hub, awaiting, boarding, disembarking, and for the duration of travel. The CDC mask requirement applies to aviation facilities such as airports, FBOs and commercial aircraft operations, including part 135 operations. Virgin Galactic has announced the date of its new flight window for a rocket-powered test flight of its SpaceShipTwo Unity. The flight window will open on February 13 with opportunities to fly throughout February, pending good weather conditions and technical readiness. The test flight will be crewed by two pilots and will carry research payloads as part of the NASA Flight Opportunities program. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
