Stratolaunch Celebrates First Powered Flight of TA-1 Test Vehicle

MOJAVE, CA – MARCH 9, 2024 – Stratolaunch, LLC is pleased to announce it has successfully completed the first powered flight of the Talon-A test vehicle, TA-1. This first flight represents a major milestone in the development of the country's first privately funded, reusable hypersonic test capability.

...

“While I can’t share the specific altitude and speed TA-1 reached due to proprietary agreements with our customers, we are pleased to share that in addition to meeting all primary and customer objectives of the flight, we reached high supersonic speeds approaching Mach 5 and collected a great amount of data at an incredible value to our customers,” said Dr. Krevor.

 Man, I love the Roc. I'm glad it is flying and performing the missions it was designed for.
