Five and a half hours ago, GTS-3 ended with the safe landing of the Delta Glider Columbia.
It was the first flight of the Delta Glider carrying a payload, the MTKS-SAT, a communications sattelite. It orbited the Earth 119 times, covering a distance of 3529575 miles. Included an EVA to activate the sattelite.

The following are the reports on the Ascent, MTKS-SAT/EVA deployment and De-Orbit/Re-entry portions of the mission.

Phantom takes flight (Chapter 1)

John Kirby, multi-billionaire and owner of Phantom Manufacturing strode out of the cavernous hangar into the sweltering equatorial heat of the Malay Peninsula.
