Hello everyone, So, I had a perfect spot, right at work, no crowds, all set up and it fly's right over top of me. So I moved away from on top of the shop to get a side view on the second flyby at KIAD........ yup, he moved too, right over top of me, oh well a different view than most.

Cool shots! I like the unusual angle. It's amazing seeing that thing piggybacked like that.

By the way, on the subject of the Shuttle, did you guys see that instagram photo of the piggyback going by the US capitol building? Insane! (Such a shame it was only a phone image, but wow.)

That program should never have been cancelled. So much modern technology has come out of the space race (modern computers, new alloys, recycling technology) that only a fool would cancel such a forward-reaching part of America. Only a fool.

Actually, the shuttle program should have been cancelled and replaced 20 years ago. As much of a marvel as it was tech wise, it was unwieldy, expensive and prone to lots of error.

If we were smart we would have invested heavily in other means of space travel than trying to re-use a vehicle over and over. We didn't invest at all, and now we're sitting with nothing but private industry to help advance our species. It's sad.

Nice set! I really like the angle on #2. Something a little different than most of the shots.

It's nice to see a different angle on it.
