Photos: L-1011 with Pegasus Rocket arrives at Cape Canaveral

Orbital ATK’s L-1011 aircraft lands at Cape Canaveral’s Air Force Station, carrying a Pegasus XL rocket topped by NASA’s eight CYGNSS ocean-wind measuring satellites. Pegasus was assembled and outfitted with its payload at Vandenberg Air Force Base, California ahead of a cross-country flight to set up for launch from the Atlantic Ocean, well clear of Florida’s Space Coast.
