I’d wanted to see what Mojave looked like from above for quite sometime.
There’s an old airliner boneyard out there and a handful of supercool spaceflight technology companies like XCOR, Masten, and Virgin.
Its the place planes go to die and spacecraft learn to fly. This whole adventure had a kind of frantic Breaking Bad vibe to it.
Always been slightly horrified of very small planes and I nearly puked from facing the wrong way the entire flight (shooting photos out of the open left door).
As fate would have it, the person kind enough to pilot me around was aviation legend Dick Rutan. - ZU
