Victory Lap Photograph by Jim Sugar
Test pilot Brian Binnie waves an American flag that flew with him moments earlier on the money-winning October 4 flight. A Scaled Composites truck tows him and the rocket past the press and public viewing areas. What was he feeling? "Relief that it's over and that it all went so well," he says. "Thankful to have had the opportunity and the support of my friends and team. And appreciation for all those wonderful people who came out to Mojave to watch."
