Virgin Galactic's SpaceShipTwo has arrived in New Mexico for a final series of flight tests. The suborbital spaceplane, named VSS Unity, was ferried from California to Spaceport America in New Mexico Thursday on its WhiteKnightTwo aircraft. The company plans a series of flight tests at the spaceport in the coming months to become familiar with operations there and to test upgrades to the vehicle and its new passenger cabin. Virgin has previously stated it expects to begin commercial operations at the spaceport by June.
