Basic Information

The Scaled Composites Model 318 White Knight is a jet-powered carrier aircraft. It was used to launch the SpaceShipOne experimental spacecraft. The two look very similar, and nest together with the somewhat larger White Knight on top.

The White Knight is now available on a contract basis as a research testbed. It was used for drop tests of the Boeing X-37 spaceplane from June 2005 until April 2006.
