The latest info:
As of this noon today, VX
had still not been granted "government operating authority", however since its only VX
staff on the inaugural flight, it will proceed tomorrow morning as scheduled. Its the flights AFTER that where the plot thickens.
The plane for the first flight is now on the ground at LAX
. Its parked over at Flightpath, and will remain there overnight while TSA
, and LAX
finish setting up for tomorrow's festivities. The plane is N622VA "California Dreaming".
If you want to get a close up view of the plane, GO NOW. Security around Flightpath will get much tighter as the evening goes on, and you can forget about parking there tomorrow to see it depart.
