The Space Shuttle has stopped over at the local AirForce Base to get refueled. We took the boys on base to have a look. We were able to get about 250 yards from it. They were pretty excited. Well - Actually, the truth of the matter is that the adults were much more excited than the kids, but we dragged them through the heat to have a look see so that we could see. You see?
Here's a pic from the local paper as it was landing.
Pretty dog-gone cool.
