Stratolaunch is reporting that it has successfully completed the first powered flight of the Talon-A test vehicle, TA-1. 

This first flight represents a major milestone in the development of the country's first privately funded, reusable hypersonic test capability. Primary objectives for the flight test included accomplishing safe air-launch release of the TA-1 vehicle, engine ignition, acceleration, sustained climb in altitude, and a controlled water landing. SpaceX is gearing up for the third flight test of its Starship rocket, tentatively scheduled for March 14, pending regulatory approval. The aerospace giant has announced that a live webcast of the flight test will commence about 30 minutes prior to liftoff. President Biden's State of the Union address ruffled feathers at NBAA, thanks to comments pointing to a crack down on one of his easier targets… those high-falootin' corporate jets. The Biden admin put out a press release following the speech, taking aim at "making big corporations pay their fair share in taxes." As part of that mission, they outline a tax plan that would raise the corporate tax rate to 28%, "crack down on tax avoidance by large multinationals and big pharma"...and "eliminate tax breaks for corporate jets". All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne-Unlimited!!!
