Space Shuttle Endeavour's final flight.
Posted 21 September 2012 - 12:09 PM
My iPhone pic doesn't do it justice (esp. at this reduced scale), but what a cool experience that was. The wind was coming from the ocean (behind us), so the approach was utterly silent.
As it turns out, one of the people awaiting the flyby was the wife of a three-mission-veteran shuttle pilot who lives in town. (He commanded the very first Challenger flight in 1983.) He was down at NASA/Ames at Moffett Field for a ceremony this morning, where the 747/Endeavour piggyback was due to make a low pass before heading off down to LA.
Really, really neat.
