OV-105 (cn OV-105) Launch of Space Shuttle Endeavour from Pad 39B on mission STS-97. This is a five minute exposure taken from the Causeway (about 7 miles away from the pad). Taken with a borrowed all-manual Nikomat camera, 24 mm lens, f/16, Kodak Royal Gold 100 film. When the exposure was stopped in this shot, the shuttle was approximately 229 statute miles downrange.

Remark
Photographer
OV-104 (cn OV-104) If one had an opportunity fly in formation with a space shuttle orbiter in the Earth's atmosphere, it would look like this. I purposely chose to have Earth background so that a sense of scale and depth can be gleaned. With commander Charles Hobaugh at the controls, "Atlantis" executed a sweeping right overhead turn to lose altitude and speed to line up for landing. The two sonic booms heralding the arrival in Florida occurred just prior. Welcome home "Atlantis"! Dear President Obama, Please keep them flying!

Remark
Photographer
OV-104 (cn OV-104) Atlantis makes her final dive towards Earth after exiting out of the last Heading Alignment Circle (HAC). Almost 35 years after the final flight of the X-24B lifting body (which showed that accurate unpowered re-entry vehicle landings were operationally feasible), the first orbiter glides towards retirement. Atlantis has previously dodged retirement and currently there is a slight glimmer of another flight. She will be the stand by rescue orbiter for the final mission and may get the last laugh yet!
