Year 22, Day 183(New Spaceplane Transported to White Mesa Facility!)

The new crew shuttle Pioneer is complete, and ready to transport west to White Mesa!

“I’m glad we finished revamping the Crew Shuttles when we did… with the disaster at Spacedock we’re going to need extra vehicles on hand!”

-Gene

The crew shuttle is un-fueled, and protective covers have been put over the front heat shield as well as the rear engines! Carson will be flying the mission solo to White Mesa, where the crew program is based!

“The X-5 is airborne! That Crew Shuttle really makes this plane perform sluggish!”

-Carson

Carson slowly brings the X-5 around and heads west, flying past the space center!

“Pretty view from up here!”

-Carson

“X-5 checking in – aircraft performance…. nominal… crew shuttle seems to be holding up well!”

-Carson

The X-5 reaches its maximum altitude, and begins the descent toward White Mesa!

“I’ve passed the terminator into night… switching on internal lighting!”

-Carson

Carson brings the aircraft around and lines up with the White Mesa runway… about 11km from the facility!

“I’m in the pipe, five by five! Setting her down!”

-Carson

The X-5 touches down and comes to a full stop! Soon the aircraft will taxi to a hangar, where the Crew Shuttle Pioneer will be separated, inspected and prepared to launch on a Nebula Rocket! Pioneer‘s twin, the original Adventure, is already stacked on a Nebula Rocket, and is being prepared for a launch!
