The photo below was taken by one of the managers from the ezStorage location in Chantilly, Virginia as Discovery was making its final approach to Dulles Airport. Shuttle Discovery will be on display at the Smithsonian institute’s newer Air and Space museum near Dulles Airport. If you haven’t been there, it is an enormous display of the history of flight, even more impressive than the world’s most visited museum, the Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C. The shuttle Enterprise sits in its own room in the Virginia museum, resting on 18 inches of concrete to support its enormous weight. The Enterprise is pristine as it was never outfitted with engines or flown into space; its only mission was to serve as a glider, launched from the back of a Boeing 747 to test landings. Discovery shows it age though as it was truly the workhorse of the space shuttle fleet.
