A real X-Wing fighter! Sort of.

No kidding, this X-Wing fighter will really fly. It’s 21 feet long, and it has four M-Class rocket booster engines, fully loaded and ready for an October 10 launch somewhere in California. While in flight, the wings will go from closed to “attack position”. If it works, the X-wing will be fully recovered in the hopes of launching it again and again. All of this is further proof that some people have too much time on their hands, but gotta love ’em anyway.
