On April 17th, the space shuttle Discovery was flown to Dulles after being decommissioned. It will be in the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum (James S. McDonnell Space Hangar at the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center) at Dulles from now on.
This is what it looked like flying over Silver Spring as seen from the office windows in the Lee Building. I took these pictures with my point and shoot camera:
|Say hello... incoming from South/East!|
At this point... I ran from one side of the building to the other... and got the planes from the other angle as they rounded the building...
|Leaving town on the North/West side of our building|
