Our Vulture 2 spaceplane is looking rather splendid, following a quick paintjob and vinyl wrap:

The wrap was designed by Ariadne, the 4-year-old daughter of a Register reader, and applied by Space Graphic Solutions  (see top photo). The underside paintjob, seen above with the Low Orbit Helium Asssisted Navigator (LOHAN) team is an in-house effort.

There are full details and photos of just how all this came together right here

I wish he was. He's the pub chef and his food is delicious.

Lester will the Space Plane be making an appearance at Farnborough at all?? I plan on being there for the trade days and would love to see it in the flesh.

@Gary: The Vulture's back in Spain, so it won't be at Farnborough, sadly.

@Monroe Thanks for that. We've been following Team Prometheus from a distance. Good work.

It is the union jack, sort of. Although we're international, and indeed have an office in San Francisco, the Brit readers demanded it. Bit of fun, but if Scotland votes for independence, we're stuffed with that paintjob.
