Virgin Orbit

Virgin Orbit have partnered with Newquay Airport to create the Cornwall Spaceport from where it will operate its horizontal launch business.

The Virgin Orbit model differs considerably from a vertical rocket launch. They will send up Boeing 747s with their Launcher One rocket attached to the underwing, which will then be launched horizontally when at a suitable height.
