The mothership of SpaceShipTwo is expected to take to the skies for test flights within the next three weeks, according to reports out of the International Symposium for Personal and Commercial Spaceflight in Las Cruces, NM.

The first flight of WhiteKnightTwo will take place more than two months after the aircraft was first rolled out amid much fanfare at the Scaled Composites production facility in Mojave, CA.
