I hope they don't TOUCH it as far as restoration or anything. They should put it on display just as it is...Looking like it just arrived from outerspace. Heat shield scortched. Thrusters darkened from use. It would be even better if they could heat the tiles so when people touch it they feel it very warm like after re-entry. Thanks Pete for getting this up so quick. I missed the fly-by.

That 747 is a 45 year old design -100 model. Try putting that space shuttle on the back of an A-380. Both the 747 and the space shuttle were workhorses and engineering marvels for NASA.
