The biggest aircraft in the world took off for its first flight and, most importantly, successfully completed it on 13 April 2019. It is the Stratolaunch Roc, the carbon-composite plane built by Stratolaunch Systems, founded in 2011 by Paul G. Allen.

The plane with “a dual fuselage design and wingspan greater than the length of an American football field”, achieved its historic milestone over the Mojave Desert in California in a flight which lasted for 2.5 hours at altitudes up to 17,000 feet.
