Not your everyday

So the US retired it’s space shuttle, Discovery. For its last ride, it sat on top of a modified Boeing 747 for a ride around the DC area, and finally to touch down at Washington Dulles International Airport. Then, it will be transferred to the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum nearby. Now, that’s history and I was part of it!
I left all the work and ran to the sidewalk to wait for it. It passed by two times in less than 15 minutes. I was able to catch a few shots.

The Boeing was so close and loud. It was amazing. A great feeling and a very cool view.
That’s one of the advantages of living near DC. You get to be part of some cool incidents that will be part of country’s history.
