Tried to get this guy to race at Ellington last year. Was out of fuel and said it wasn't in his budget.




Nudged up then took off and left him standing still.

Is everyone aware that a Solstice owner flew on the Space Shuttle?

I found the thread:

https://www.solsticeforum.com/forum/f...e-today-46478/

The pilot on that mission STS-124 Ken Ham was the Solstice owner. He also flew on STS-132.

I don't know how many miles he put on his Solstice, but he logged 5,735,643 miles on his "other" vehicle on Flight STS-124.
