interesting time to promote this when 50 miles up is the goal yet the wings of the second generation test ship can't make one trip up a fraction of that without developing cracks in the wings.

Too many broken promises and missed deadlines with Spaceport America. Letís just sell Spaceport America to the highest bidder and get out from under the tax burden. I always say: if it looks like cat %hit, and smells like cat %hit; it is usually cat %hit.
