The Space Shuttle Atlantis (OV-104) arrives at Fort Campbell Army Airfield! This was the experience of a lifetime for me. I want to personally thank the United States Army and NASA for making this possible to me. Atlantis is here due to inclement weather in Florida. She is returning to Kennedy Space Center after completing mission STS-117.

Excellent full frame picture. Very rare to see it this close up. Especially on a ferry flight after the completion of a mission to space.

A rare sight! You can imagine the conversation back at Nasa when investigating how to ferry the shuttle around. "Just put it on top of a goddam 747!"... And they did!

I think than the most wonderfull thing is in my personal opinion is the great job of this guys from nasa in to figure out to place carefully the space shhuttle on the other aircraft (747) to be sure than everything its okey to carry the space shuttle.., The picture from me has a 10.. without Doubts...Carlos Jose Valles (From Virginia)

That looks pretty bizarre. Why is that airplane CARRYING the space shuttle? Nice photo of this aircraft, or, as I should say, aircrafts.
