Remark
Photographer
N905NA / 376 (cn 20107/86) [9:45AM] A historic moment captured. This was the first of two spectacular passes down Runway 1R by the Shuttle Carrier Aircraft with Discovery (OV-103) attached. Also visible is a T-38 chase/photo plane, which documented Discovery's final journey. Discovery, which was decommissioned in March after 27 years of service, will soon go on display at the National Air and Space Museum's Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center.

Remark
Photographer
N905NA / 376 (cn 20107/86) A Moment for the History Books. NASA's famed Space Shuttle Orbiter Discovery arrives to complete her final, and perhaps most enduring mission: educating millions of Americans about the importance of shooting for the stars.

Remark
Photographer
N905NA / 376 (cn 20107/86) The world's largest and expensive biplane heading for her flyby of the Shuttle Landing Facility before going to DC. The sun has just begun to peak from behind a cloud hence there is a glint on the fuselages. Directly under the tail of the SCA is the construction for the new home of Atlantis. The complex is the KSC visitor center and the rockets of the 50 and 60s can be seen in the rocket garden. I dedicate this to all the general public who showed up at 5am to see this sight!

Titusville - NASA Shuttle Landing Facility (TTS)
USA - Florida, April 17, 2012
Remark
Photographer
N905NA / 376 (cn 20107/86) Approx. 0655H EDT, shuttle carrier aircraft 905 rolled on 15 and rotated with Discovery one last time (#39 for her on 905). Here, the world largest biplane is climbing with the T-38 photo chase taking the photos (almost a triplane!). The sun was at the horizon behind a large cloud hence this similar lighting to civil twilight. If i had control, i would have held her on the runway until the sun cleared.

N905NA / 376 (cn 20107/86) N905NA operating as "Pluto 95 Heavy" deliveres OV-103 Discovery to her final home at the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center at Dulles airport. T38 wingman "Pluto 98" accompanies them moments before touchdown on Runway 1R. N905NA had already completed two low approaches earlier with this being her final full-stop landing.

N905NA / 376 (cn 20107/86) Welcome to Dulles, Discovery! Seen here on top of NASA’s 747 SCA for a fly-over of runway 1R before heading to DC to fly around the capital’s airspace. Upon returning to IAD, another fly-over was performed before coming in for one final landing and display at the Smithsonian’s Udvar-Hazy Museum.

N905NA / 376 (cn 20107/86) The T-38 chase plane looks as though it's trying to hitch a ride. NASA and all involved put on a great show for the Nation's Capital and surrounding areas. Farewell Discovery!
