Taken at T-11 hours from the first launch attempt of STS - 121 "Return to Flight mission". This was taken moments after the protective structure (seen on left) rolled back to expose the orbiter. The lights are on inside as you can see from the overhead cockpit windows. [1600 X 1200 pixels - Canon 1 Ds MkII]

Unbelievable! Shows the might of the shuttle, and this is a great tribute to all the successful missions, as well as a great way to remember the few tragedies that have happened.

A brilliant shot on a nicely lit time of day. Well done and I look forward to more of the same.
