    I know, there even was a twin-fuselage P51 Mustang... But that doesn't mean it doesn't come with its weirdness, particularly at the scale of this thing...

    Yeah, the P-81 was fugly. The P-38 though...that is a twin-fuselage as it should be done.

    Stratolaunch just shared they're working on an unmanned orbital shuttle to launch satellites called BLACK ICE. Very few specifics.

    If you're in Mojave or anywhere near it today and you haven't seen this plane outside in the wild, make an effort if you can. The scale of it is mind boggling.
