KDTWFlyer-- When will it fly next?
When do you think?
They gotta look the plane over --which by now the mx guys have pretty much done already-- and if there is any very light work to attend to then maybe a few days set aside for that.
Most crucial for next-flight preparations --and next-flight systems and flight checkout and experiment/data collecting planning especially-- I guess is poring over the reams and reams of downlinked telemetry and onboard stored data that this flight produced. So that they can start building a parameter baseline for the aircraft, see if there're any areas of concern warranting further inflight investigation right away in the next flight, make a flight plan, and all the rest of it. How many days d'you think that would all take -- probably at the very least the rest of this week maybe?
And then of course there's the weather on top of that -- it's got to be another day fairly similar to today's to make data parameter comparisons between the first two flights as controllable and therefore meaningful as possible.
According to this article (see last paragraph) it'll be a bit of time yet before flight #2 (and #3, etc) come along:
