NASA Space Shuttle Discovery makes final voyage
Strapped on the top of a Boeing 747, the famous space shuttle was chartered to its final resting place at the Steven F Udvar-Hazy Center on Tuesday.
The NASA Space Shuttle Discovery was on a mission Tuesday, but its destination wasn’t space.
Strapped on the top of a Boeing 747, the shuttle flew to its final resting spot, a permanent display space at the Steven F Udvar-Hazy Center, an annex of the Smithsonian Institution’s National Air and Space Museum in Chantilly, Va.
But before touching down at Dulles Airport, the Discovery had one last hurrah. As thousands gathered to watch, the shuttle flew low over Washington DC’s most recognizable monuments.
Luckily, onlookers came to the event armed with their smartphones. The Daily Dot has collected some of our favorites in a Storify. As stunning a sight as the shuttle was, there’s nothing Instagram filters can’t improve.
