One of the spotters over at the IAH Spotter's club caught some pics of this bird at Ellington--he says 3 people got off, in addition to the 3 man crew. Anybody know what this flight was for? BTW its in the new colors.

Maybe it has to do with Hurricane Dennis? Or the Discovery launch on Wednesday - maybe it's a charter flight from NASA to the Kennedy Space Center?
