One of the perks of living in the Washington, DC metro area is that we really are blessed with some pretty cool sights. Today was one for the record books though. The space shuttle Discovery is retiring to the Smithsonian’s Udvar Hazey Air & Space Museum in Northern Virginia. The shuttle arrived in our nation’s capital in style this morning, atop a Beoing 747! That’s right people, a space shuttle on top of an airplane!
I was lucky enough to be on the road when the shuttle made its descent into Dulles International Airport and snapped this picture and video just before landing. Incredibly isn’t it?!
From the top of the parking garage at my office, a coworker took this picture.
Do you live in the DC metro area? Where did you spot the shuttle today?
