Korea Aerospace Industries (KAI) and Lockheed Martin have flown the second T-50 training aircraft from KAI's facility at Sachon, South Korea. The 8 November flight lasted 47min, during which the aircraft achieved an airspeed of 250kt (465km/h) and an altitude of 15,000ft (4,575m). Aircraft number two will be used to evaluate airframe loads throughout the T-50's flight envelope, plus stability and control, high angle-of-attack characteristics and stores separation testing. Unlike the first test aircraft, number two is equipped with a spin-recovery parachute.
