Registration: N140SC<br />

<br />
In the early 1990s, Orbital Sciences began to use a converted L-1011-100 named Stargazer to launch Pegasus rockets into orbit around Earth. This venture effectively rendered the small Scout rocket obsolete. This aircraft was also used in support of the X-34 program. NASA performed aerodynamic research on Orbital Science's L-1011 in 1995.<br /><br /><img src=http://www.gearthhacks.com/showimage.php?image=112807/569677OrbitalSciences.jpg>
