TRR: Test Readiness Review

The original "Weightless Wonder" KC-135... footage for Apollo 13 was filmed on this aircraft.

In order for our team to fly, we need to pass a Test Readiness Review. A large group of engineers, pilots, and safety personnel have been reviewing our proposals and documents, and will come to each table to critique our rig. If the rig is classed as unsafe for flight, a team cannot pass the TRR and cannot fly.

Team Carthage was a little worried about passing the TRR, yet fortunately for us, our rig had no problems and has been cleared for flight! Wish us luck tomorrow as we send our first crew of flyers up on the Zero Gravity aircraft.
