[Link] Scaled Composites: Largest Wingspan Ever

From: andrew cooke <andrew@...>

Date: Wed, 31 May 2017 23:38:22 -0400

If this gets off the ground it's biger than the Spruce Goose

Company names are confusing here.  It's credited to Vulcan Aerospace,
but actually built by Scaled Composites, who are the same people who
build for Virgin Galactic.

It's actually Northrop Grumman now.
