If you were in the Washington, D.C. area this morning (April 17), you were treated to a fly-by of the Space Shuttle Discovery riding piggy-back on a 747 as it made its way to the National Air and Space Museum’s Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center located near Dulles International Airport.
I did not want to miss out on this once in a lifetime opportunity, so I took the morning off and headed down to West Potomac Park. Feeling like a wide-eyed little kid and giggling with joy (YAY!), I witnessed the Shuttle make three fly-bys along the Potomac River and the National Mall. It was utterly amazing, something that I will never forget.
