NASA launched a weather satellite last night. They launched it from this, the Lockheed L-1011 STARGAZER:

It was the Ionospheric Connection Explorer or ICON satellite, and it was on a 52,000 lb Pegasus rocket.

Quote:
"It's dropping 52,000 pounds, but the plane still has the same lift," he said. "...so the plane climbs fairly rapidly about 1,200 to 1,500 feet as the rocket's falling."

This is pretty cool stuff! Imagine the plane ride when you drop all that weight.

It looks like only three L-1011's are still flying. Too bad.

This has me puzzled. The "rack" holding the bike looks like a permanent fixture so I don't think he's flying the plane somewhere and biking back. Since the pilot sits in the rear seat on some of these early planes maybe he flies the bike and dispatch rider to a far location and the rider/bike go the rest of the way to where the plane can't. I'm guessing.

Meh. All those pictured luxuries are still very much available. Just pay $4,700 a ticket. (That was the average cost of an off-season, round trip from NYC to London in 1950... after being adjusted for inflation.)

Seems to me the turbulence from the open frame would have a higher penalty then a simple coverings weight.
Plus freezing your nuts off.
