hey anik, are there any hopes to see some of the remaing orbiter being cared of? Does RSC Energia have any plans about the Energia LV?

It really saddens me to see one of the Soviet Orbiters beheaded and covered in snow. That better not be the fate of NASA's three Orbiters!

My guess is you will see one Orbiter at the Smithsonian, one at the USAF Museum at Wright-Patterson AFB, and the third displayed at either JSC or KSC. Barring that, the Seattle Museum of Flight (which gets my vote because that's closest to where I live:)).

Not if they keep clogging the Smithsonian with Rutan's contraptions.
I don't want to see any of that.

Does anyone have any links to illustrations of the inside of Buran (middeck and flight deck interior photos, pictures of the payload bay through aft flight deck windows, etc)?

Thanks

Nice seat.

And looks like it wasn't using more than two computers?

A couple of CRT displays that look more like Etch-A-Sketches and a slew of analog flight instrumentation. Long before glass cockpits. But it worked.

She does look nice inside, not as much as the U.S Orbiters, but this one can fly without a crew which really made her special.
