Stratolaunch, world's largest plane

Stratolaunch, the largest plane ever built, took its first flight Saturday out of California's Mojave Air & Space Port, spokesperson Andrea Courtney confirmed in a statement to USA TODAY.

"Achieving a maximum speed of 189 miles per hour, the plane flew for 2.5 hours over the Mojave Desert at altitudes up to 17,000 feet," the statement read. "As part of the initial flight, the pilots evaluated aircraft performance and handling qualities before landing successfully back at the Mojave Air and Space Port."

The plane is the largest in the world based on wingspan — measuring 385 feet — which is longer than a standard NFL football field. It also weighs 500,000 pounds, more than the biggest Boeing 747, and boasts six 747 engines.
