In the long-awaited test, a helicopter carried the Dream Chaser engineering test article aloft and released it at an altitude of more than 3,000 meters, allowing the vehicle to glide to a runway landing at Edwards. Ten years into development, the spacecraft completed a successful free-flight drop test in the Mojave Desert in November 2017.
