- 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.
