For anyone who’s been wondering about Operation StratoChicken, it’s been rescheduled for Thursday morning. Here’s the latest update from World View CEO Jane Poynter on the KSC Zinger chicken sandwich promotion.

Hi everyone,

Another quick update for those interested in watching the live broadcast of our upcoming Stratollite launch. Weather conditions have created a nice launch window opening tomorrow and spanning the next few days, so we are officially a GO for a launch attempt early tomorrow morning (Thursday, 6/29).

Our friends at KFC are still preparing to operate the live broadcast feed and narration, so this should be interesting and fun. Again, enjoy it and take the commentary with a grain of salt! It’s a great opportunity for you to witness our launch operation.

The final timing for launch is TBD, but KFC’s live broadcast of the event will start at 5:00am PT 8:00am ET.) Keep an eye on our facebook and twitter pages for real-time updates on launch timing.

And, once again, here’s the URL where KFC will be hosting the live broadcast feed:
