On June 30, 2021 at 13:53 UTC, Virgin Orbit’s 747 carrier aircraft (Boeing-747-400 ‘Cosmic Girl’) took off from Mojave Air and Space Port in California with the “LauncherOne” rocket mounted under its left wing. The crew sent the command to drop the rocket over the Pacific Ocean off the coast Southern California at 14:47 UTC. An air-launched rocket built by Richard Branson’s Virgin Orbit reached orbit, delivering 7 satellites.
