Nice find DD. I see that this thing will break up after the test, I hope they sort that bit out before it becomes a commercial flight.  Shocked

And the latest news is that the flight was a total failure, that the craft had a problem with a fin and crashed before it's scramjet could even fire up..........another expensive "D'oh"
