I JUST SAW THE SPACE SHUTTLE ENTERPRISE!

Post by lovekitties on Fri Apr 27, 2012 10:42 am

teh shuttle destined for the Intrepid air and space Museum on the Hudson River just flew past my window on the back of a 747. It will fly to JFK airport where it will in turn be stored and then barged u the Hudson in July for the new exhibit.

It certainly was. It flew low up the Hudon River, and I saw it in between two buildings.
My brother, who used to work in the Commodities exchange says a bunch of his friends posted pics on Facebook. They had unrestricted views being right o the Hudson.
I was really lucky. I heard on the radio "what an awesome sight, looked out my window and there it was. If I'd looked a second later I would have missed it

yes, and I'm going to try to see it when it gets barged over from JFK. Of course it will be on display right here in NYC so I can go see it at the museum, but it was a real thrill to see it fly by. Only thing better would have been seeingan actual shuttle launch.

Or seeing it coming in on it's own power for a landing. Still, you will get to see it up close. I doubt I'll ever get the chance to do that myself.

Cool! Did the ground shake when it lifted off? I heard that it does.

just saw it on the launch pad, never saw a lift off in person, although one of my co-workers has seen two of them. His brother worked for NASA
