WhiteKnightTwo

The all composite aircraft has a wingspan of 141 feet and is flown from the right fuselage. Unlike most airplanes of its size, it has no autopilot and the controls are simple pushrods and (carbon fiber) cables. There is no fly by wire or even boosted controls, it's a true stick and rudder airplane. This is a plane that could bring space flight to the masses, yet the controls are more Piper Cub than Boeing 777.
