I Saw The Shuttle! Over GPT

Fri Jul 30, 1999 5:55 am

The Space Shuttle flew over my house on its way into KSC. It was around 10:40 PM. It looked like a fire ball shooting across my town. You could tell it was not an airplane. I kept tuned to NASA TV to track it. Then I went out, and there it was! I was at 39 Miles up. It flew over Southeast Mississippi.

Regards,
Colin Kumpunen (TWA 727-200)

I work at the New Orleans airport and I kept looking for it, but we had a flight that landed at about the time that it woulda been flying over. Anyway, the next day all the radio stations were abuzz over the "fly-by"
