Great shots. It's amazing how much weight a 747 will lift. I wonder what the next generation of space travel will look like!

Saw a piggyback go over @ about 8K' once down in Westchester County NY long time ago. Those shots are really nice! Doesn't it strike anyone strange that NYC/NJ and CA gets a shuttle for posterity and Houston Space Center gets zip? Did the choice come down to who had the most tax payers back in the day or just stupid politics again. It's just not right.
