Comments come two years after tragic test flight
Virgin Galactic says it is “close” to flying again, nearly two years after a test flight ended in tragedy.
“We’re very close to being ready to fly. We are in those final checks,” the company’s head of operations, Mike Moses, told The Sunday Times.
When pushed by the reporter interviewing him, he said it was “possible” that test flights could resume next year.
His comments come following the disaster on October 31, 2014, which saw one test pilot killed and one injured when one of the company’s rockets broke up during a test flight.
More than 700 people have signed up for the flights which cost £190,000 (€223,000) each and which will see people break out of the earth’s atmosphere from the Virgin Galactic base in southern California.
