CoolPix - NASA: Shuttle Endeavour Riding 747 SCA (2008)

(click pic for hi-res)

 With Shuttle Atlantis currently in space, and just two launches left in the program (scheduled for the fall), it seems like it's a good time to begin to look back... so you can expect lots of CoolPix and videos of NASA's Space Transportation System.  This pic comes from and shows a very awesome view of Shuttle Endeavour riding on top of a 747 Shuttle Carrier Aircraft as it made a pass over Johnson Space center in Houston back in December 2008.

 It's pretty amazing that the picture is aligned about as close as you could ever imagine getting to straight down the centerline of both aircraft!  It's also a very unique view from behind, definitely the kind of pic you could look at for a long time - enjoy!
