Wind at Barksdale is 25mph NW so landing will be on Runway 33.   

Google Earth shows gazillions of B52's on the apron at Barksdale - look out for them during landing coverage!

wowza! I saw the T38 taking off from Ellington field and heading out to the parking lot to watch.
first pass was too low to see through the trees and buildings, but then we had 3 great passes around the JSC/USA buildings - two directly overhead!

Yeah, first pass was too low for good pics from the mall area. Second one was much better. Pics from each pass attached.

You can still see a little snow on the ground in the first pic, though it's melting rapidly...

Very nice picture Jorge, at full size that's a very nice view of the duo.

That is assuming that there is a feed, I can not seem to find one....

Me neither.  Very Sad :(

Heh, I'd take that just for the link in the AP feed - best free advertising you could ever hope for ;)

Just got back from seeing Endeavour leave FWNAS. Beautiful sight. Set up a telescope and let people observe.

I think the station breaks for commercial advertising that they don't show on the webcast.

Hmm, this crew seems more interested in fawning over the snow than the space shuttle.....

In the grand scheme of things - today's record breaking snowfall is MUCH more important.
