Much better frames, now that I can see them at full-res (from the RAW files).

See flickr for high-res.

I'll bet we can easily say that this was the most photographed shuttle ferry flight in history.

After the landing, I went into the museum and took these photos of Enterprise looking lonely and unloved.
In the 2nd picture of Enterprise, there are some marks on the RCC panels. Might they be from the testing done during the CAIB testing?  I had heard that some wing panels were borrowed from Enterprise.

Awesome pictures, most seem to be from D.C., here's mine from the KSC VC parking lot- got three passes.

Yeah. Also some marks on the landing gear door. I was present for one of the tests that scraped the tiles on the door.

I thought you guys might like to see some of my images from Discovery's arrival in DC.  These arrival photos were taken from the Sully Historic Site across from Udvar-Hazy.  It was great hanging out with a few of you during the Welcome Discovery Ceremony.











Here is a photo stitch I made of the ceremony:
