Seeing a photo like this just goes further to prove how amazing the 747 is to be able to fly with such a behemoth on her back.

Can somebody explain to me as to what on earth is a Boeing 747, carrying a NASA space shuttle doing in Paris, France???
The pic is a great one though.
Also, look closely to the horizontal stabilizer of the 747...there's some modification made to it. Usually it doesn't have that fancy little vertical thing hanging out the edge of its stabilizer.
Must be made to compensate the fact that the shuttle itself will have an aerodynamic effect of its own.

Great Shot. It's a testament to the B747 that she can fly with that huge shuttle on her back.

The NASA 747 and Shuttle Enterprise toured Europe in 1983. It visited the Paris Air Show, Koeln/Bonn Germany and Stanstead UK and did a flyby at LHR.
