The space shuttle program:
Launched in the 70’s, the space shuttle program had chosen an original option to launch into earth orbit and recover its space shuttles: The shuttles took off like rockets but returned to earth gliding like an airplane!
This choice had to be validated because taking off a rocket and the temperature constraints during the return to earth imposed to choose a shuttle with wings of relatively small surface… So a very fast landing. To make the tests, it was decided to transform a BOEING 747 and to allow him to take off with his shuttle on the back and to go up in altitude to drop his load!
