VKK Buran BTS-002 (OK-GLI)
Off-Airport - Dusseldorf
Germany, April 8, 2008
Remark

CCCP-3501002 (cn 0.02) This spaceframe, built in 1984, was designed for aerodynamic and landing tests. Therefore it was equipped with four AL-31 jet engines, two of them are still visible. The first flight was Nov. 10, 1985, last flight Apr. 15, 1988. Note the faded CCCP marking on the wings. Here the Buran orbiter just passes the "Flehe bridge" on river Rhine (km 732) near Dusseldorf.

Remark

OV-104 (cn OV-104) At 5:57 am EDT, after 13 days and 200 orbits around earth, Space Shuttle Atlantis completes mission STS-135 thus ending America’s 30-year Space Shuttle program. Since STS-1 in 1981, 355 individuals from 16 countries flew 852 times aboard five Space Shuttles. Together, they traveled more than 542 million miles. I feel privileged to have taken part in her last two missions. Farewell Space Shuttle… [1/160 sec, f/2.8, ISO 3200]

Remark
Photographer
OV-104 (cn OV-104) One final time to view of the last operational space shuttle on its last night inside the Vehicle Assembly Building. This is a sight that will never be seen again. "Atlantis" got her last laugh as she beat premature retirement twice to end up being the last flown orbiter. However, the end of the STS program is now final.

USA - Florida, November 27, 2009
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!

N905NA (cn 20107/86) 1358 GMT (9:58 a.m. EDT). Touchdown! Discovery is back home. The left main gear impacted first followed by the right. The nose wheel is still up as aerodynamic braking is always useful when one carries a load like this. Welcome home Discovery!

Remark
Photographer
OV-104 (cn OV-104) The final Orbiter Recovery Convoy brings "Atlantis" back to OPF#02 post landing. It consists of a number of specially-designed vehicles and a team of specialists who safe and service the orbiter and assist in crew egress. The Orbiter Tow Vehicle is bringing her while the Orbiter Coolant Transporter and the Orbiter Purge Transporter run her systems from the rear. She travels at walking pace and is accompanied by the recovery members as is seen. On this very last time, it was a very somber procession.

Remark
Photographer
OV-104 (cn OV-104) The two most flown orbiters meet for the final time. "Atlantis" is lined up to enter OPF#01 to finish her transition and retirement. "Discovery" is done and has just vacated OPF#01 and will soon depart KSC for the last time. The two orbiters paused nose-to-nose for one final good bye. Here Discovery heads to the VAB for storage till her ferry flight. This is the closest the two orbiters have ever been to each other.
