Book your flight now!

Once the mother ship reaches 50,000 feet, which was the cruising altitude of Concorde, the spaceship is released and its rocket is fired, accelerating the craft up to 2,500mph, and taking it to 110km, officially making its passengers astronauts.

Can you refresh my memory?

I'm trying to recall the first time a plane "piggy-backed" to a certain altitude before launching.

Was it to break the sound barrier, or to set an altitude record for an airplane????


In the meantime, I'll have to wait until the exchange rate for the dollar improves. Happy

Get some weather balloons and put on some winter clothing and ride the balloons up. Take a couple cans of air too, maybe my Bic lighter and a BB gun and away you go. Cheaper than the Virgin Airways. Wink -----Willy

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
