Forty years and 16 days after the prototype orbiter Enterprise flew its fifth and final free flight approach and landing test, Sierra Nevada’s Dream Chaser achieved a similar feat from the same place. The smaller commercial space plane dropped away from a helicopter above the lake bed at Edwards Air Force Base in California to glide to a landing on the same runway used by the shuttles to return from orbit. The flight advances SNC’s plans to use the Dream Chaser to fly cargo to and from the International Space Station under a contract with NASA.
