After nearly two years in orbit, the US. Air Force’s unmanned X-37B space plane is ready to land.

Multiple media outlets have reported that the X-37B will land at some point on Tuesday.

According to CNN:

The X-37B is expected to land at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, the Air Force said.

The base did not give an exact time for the landing, but a notice to aviators and mariners on the Federal Aviation Administration’s website said airspace around the Southern California base would be closed from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. PT Tuesday.

“Team Vandenberg stands ready to implement safe landing operations for the X-37B Orbital Test Vehicle, the third time for this unique mission,” Col. Keith Baits, commander of the 30th Space Wing, told CNN in a statement.
