I was there for the last shuttle launch...ever! Awesome and sad, too!
=O... esta super....
WOW so cool.
That is what i miss...ready for launch..:)
@jimdamic - prior to launches, the STAs are aloft for weather recon - checking out weather at various altitudes and reporting to ground weather office.
Faster than a speeding bullet - I remember the first launch when I was an EIT in college - still cool !
Great Shot, but why is there a Shuttle Training Aircraft (STA) in the air. There is nothing more to train for.
