In honor of the successful opening of the Space Shuttle Atlantis exhibit at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, I’ve decided to post some of the pictures I took from the final flight of Space Shuttle Endeavour to its final resting place at the California Science Center.
One of the many benefits of working at Patrick AFB/Cape Canaveral AFS is the level of access you gain to Kennedy Space Center. During final preparations for its final flight, I was able to take a few photographs of the shuttle as it sat atop a modified 747 designed to transport the Space Shuttles between locations depending on the different landing sites. Until today, this was the last opportunity many of us had to get up close and personal with any of the Space Shuttles.
Now, the Space Shuttle Atlantis is on display at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Center at a beautiful 43.21 degree inclination angle (get it, 4-3-2-1!) for the enjoyment of all future generations. Stay tune for pictures in the next couple of days…
