    Four thirds photographs on both sides of the Hudson should have a great opportunity to catch the Shuttle Enterprise on her fly-by atop her carrier 747 aircraft tomorrow, weather permitting. Flight from Florida will be between 9:30-11:30am. While she never flew in space, she was the testbed and trainer for practicing all those unpowered glide approaches. See link here for details.

    I work at exchange place. I'm wondering if my boss will let me step out.

    ...probably not, lol.

    Enterprise is a heck of a lot cleaner than Discovery! I guess that's what happens when you're the sheltered child of the family... :p

    Cool shot.

    Honestly, anytime I see something flying between buildings, especially in New York, it freaks me out just a little bit.

    This is the first time it's flown in 27 years. It looks like it's wearing a grin :)

    From the Jersey Side

    Taken from my office building in Newark NJ---bear of a time shooting through the windows, plus all the hunting of my four thirds 70-300 on the E-PL1. Also, got really overcast just as she flew by the building!

    There are a lot of us in the Maryland, DC, Virginia area who have a real fondness for Enterprise, she was our shuttle. I wanted very much to be at Dulles to watch the take off this morning, but I'm still catching up from taking days off to watch Discovery come in. I'm glad I took the time off to get those last few shots of Enterprise at Udvar-Hazy.
