World’s largest airplane “ROC” took its first ever flight

The world’s largest airplane called ‘ROC’ weighing nearly 2,26,800 kg with a 385-foot wingspan took its first ever flight in Mojave, California. It is built by Stratolaunch design launch rockets into orbit from the air. The plane is powered by six engines on a twin fuselage and is designed to fly to an altitude of 35,000 feet. The aircraft is so big its wing span is longer than a football field, or about 1.5 times that of an Airbus A380.
