The Final “Flight” of the Space Shuttle Enterprise

Enterprise 15

Very few words today… mostly photos, and goosebumps. I was fortunate enough to be in Hoboken as the shuttle Enterprise, atop its SCA 747, made its last flight. Needless to say, if you’re old enough to remember the beginnings of the shuttle program — and to have seen the tragedies that befell the Challenger and Columbia — it was one hell of an experience to be able to see the shuttle one last time, and to be able to leave the experience with fond memories. — PB

The First 10,000 runs on passion (and an awful lot of caffeine). Buy me a coffee.
