Default What flew by on Friday

My son took several pictures of a news event in our neck of the woods. Thought I'd share it with you since Drox Operative is in beta. Kinda related..sort of.

View facing west with our carport and side of house.

I will keep this view up for a month. Need the space for my gaming battle maps in the game I run on Rpol dot net.

Actually it was a cool pic. For Castruccio, they were "flying" that one back to LA where it will go on display in a museum.

Yes, they flew from Florida to Houston to So. Calif. desert area. Then took off for a 'show me off' flight around California. Went north to the capitol (Sacramento) then over to San Francisco and a flight over the Golden Gate Bridge (honoring Star Trek movies - sort of) then down the coast line to LA where it will be taken to the museum over land to the museum. An internet friend of mine lives in Houston and she got to go to the landing field where it was refueling and had a picture taken 100 feet away from the airplane wing. The shuttle looked kinda dirty and burnt in a few places. Close up it was a marvel. Can't put that pic up without her permission.
