OV-105 (cn OV-105) "Endeavour" on STS-118 Mission to the ISS. The roll maneuver starts with the orbiter beginning a combined roll, pitch and yaw maneuver that positions the head down, with wings level & aligned with the launch pad. She flies upside down in ascent phase. This orientation, together with trajectory shaping, establishes a trim angle of attack favorable for aerodynamic load & pilot ground reference. 3 cardboard covers of the RSS nozzles are falling off now and about to be burned.[Canon 1Ds MkII;600mm IS L;2X]

Remark
Photographer
OV-104 (cn OV-104) Space Shuttle Atlantis is a small tip on the trailing column of fire and smoke after launching on its journey to the International Space Station on mission STS-117. Liftoff from Launch Pad 39A was on-time at 7:38:04 pm (EDT). Wide angle view allows you to spot the famous countdown clock at the bottom of the frame. This is where we called a 'Press Site' being located 3.2 miles from the Pad 39A - the closest point as far as the civilians are allowed to go (except those remote control cameras).

Remark

OV-103 (cn OV-103) "I can't think of a better place to be here on the Fourth of July and Independence Day, to be getting ready to launch into space. To all the folks at Kennedy Space Center and the Shuttle program, thanks a lot for working so hard in the last dew days and the last year to get us ready. To all the folks on the Florida east coast, we hope to very soon get you up-close-and-personal look at the rocket's red glare" said by CDR Steven Lindsey over the radio. Here you go commander! This is your rocket's red glare!

Remark
Photographer
OV-103 (cn OV-103) As the weather seemed to be quite unstable at Kennedy Space Center, I almost thought that the mission control team would send Discovery to California. But, surprisingly enough, they decided to land her at KSC, and here she comes! Welcome back Discovery!! CDR Mark Polansky and PLT William Oefelein smoothly bring the vehicle back to the 15000ft runway 15 for landing at sunset (5:32pm EST). Congratulation for the entire NASA team for the successful STS-116 mission (204 orbits, traveling 5.3 million miles).

Remark
Photographer
OV-105 (cn OV-105) "Endeavour" departs on the 6,577,800 mile STS-123 mission at 2:28:14 a.m. EDT on March 11, 2008. Technically, the most difficult shot I have attempted because of the sudden switch from low light levels to intense sun-like light and speed changing from 0MPH to thousands in seconds at distance of 4 miles.

Remark
Photographer
OV-103 (cn OV-103) Many journalists and photographers flock in front of the Launch Pad 39B to watch the service structure roll away from Discovery at 11:00 pm on July 12. It was truly a stunning moment when everyone was anxiously waiting for. As the initial launch attempt in the following day had been scrubbed because the fuel sensor in the external tank did not work properly, it finally had launched on July 26 -- the first Space Shuttle mission since Columbia's disaster 2 1/2 years ago which left the entire fleet grounded.

Remark
Photographer
OV-104 (cn OV-104) "Atlantis" sits on Launch Complex 39 (LC-39) at the John F. Kennedy Space Center on Merritt Island in Florida. It contains a 2-piece access tower system, the Fixed Service Structure (FSS) and the Rotating Service Structure (RSS). The FSS permits access to the Shuttle via a retractable arm. The RSS contains the Payload Changeout Room, which offers "clean" access to the orbiter's payload bay, protection from the elements and the orbiter. Here the RSS is open to uncover the orbiter prior to launch.

OV-104 (cn OV-104) One of NASA's crawler transporters navigate up the ramp to Pad 39B with "Atlantis" and her external tank and solid rocket boosters in the launch configuration. Leveling systems within the crawler keeps the platform level while negotiating the 5% ramp leading up to the pad surface.The top of the orbiter is kept vertical within plus or minus 10 minutes of arc. Top speed with load is approx 1MPH.

OV-103 (cn OV-103) A rare sight: The Shuttle Discovery, 12 stories tall and 100 tons strong, hangs from the crane inside the Vehicle Assembly Building, ready to be lifted and attached to the 18-story booster stack that will take it into space on STS-131, the orbiter's next-to-last mission.
