You can see a bit of the third engine on the left wing just beyond the landing gear.

This is one huge puppy. It appears those 28 tires are about 8 foot tall, and the wings are longer by 25 yards than the length of an American Football field, including the end zones. Each fuselage must be around 200 feet.

Ugly where you look at him

Where do you suppose they will place the payload, ie. the space vehicle ? There doesn't seem to be much space (height-wise) between the fuselages. The wing (from a very layman's point of view) does not look very sturdy to hang another craft.

What do you think the crosswind landing limit is? Do the gear swivel to align with runway like the B-52 to allow to land in a crab?

Probably just wait for a "Severe Clear" day with calm winds to launch/return!
Doug Cook
I'd guess those five slots at mid-wing are the payload attachments.
Colton Fletcher
QUITE odd looking!
