It's a shame that these are being retired early. :(

She did get a very warm welcome here @ Dulles. All the folks appreciating the multiple fly-by's was indeed a sight to see.

Its so hard to not take a cliche photo on something like this. I have seen a dozen pictures of this flight, and they mostly look the same. That said, the first picture was either genius or lucky, I love it either way.

I would say more luck than genius. I was expecting the shuttle to flyover one runway and had lined myself up for the parallel runway to get the side profile shot. Then they decided to do the flyover the runway I was near, resulting in this one.:)
