    Must be pretty stable the way they are parading it around NYC airspace. :/

    And the added weight on the air frame. Did they have to modify that 747's structure to support the shuttle? I can imagine it puts a lot of stress on the plane when it lands.

    They were just talking about that. A modified 747, the original plane from the testing days used only to ferry shuttles.

    a few yrs ago during one of its last early morning launches, watched it live on the news & we live on the east coast, went out on the deck & saw it going right up the coast.. it looked like it was constantly pushing sound waves in front of it like those youtubes of jets breaking the sound barrier, it was pretty fucking amazing.:cool:
