    Fantastic photos, everyone! Great coverage all around. And what an amazing day, an incredible sight to see!

    A few random thoughts from the day - when the Shuttle/SCA appeared from behind the trees at Bayswater, I was taken by just how big they looked. Obviously, I've seen 747s and A380s from there, but this combo just looked larger to me. Maybe it was just the excitement of actually seeing it in person. We had a good crowd out, but I was expecting even more folks - although I guess it is a little bit of an out-of-the-way place for many not familiar with it. And thankfully, the guy opened the gate a little before 9am - a few of us got there before 7:30, and were sweating it out. And I'm thankful for an understanding boss, two months into a new job, who simply said "do what ever you need to..." as the schedule kept changing this week. Although I think part of it was because she wanted to show off some cool photos to her kids.

    Number one on my list of fun airplanes to fly! Extended trail in the T-38 was just a license to steal.

    How can you not love the T-38? Love that plane. Hats off to Yankee and Fred.
    Thank you!

    It's hard to take chances but sometimes it's better if you do

    What a great day

    Does anyone know if it'll be parked outside tomorrow? I'm heading out to do some spotting and was wondering if it'd be visible from the JFK Expwy or the Air Train. Not looking for photo ops, just to get a glimpse.

    Really great pictures, everyone. Truly jealous beyond words and angry that I was at work.. I am not a hardcore spotter by any means but I have been looking forward to this day since I knew Enterprise was coming here.

    Easily visible from AirTrain. Look to your right as you travel between Federal Circle and T1.

    I took a short video. The audio is rough because of the wind so either mute or turn down your speakers. It was an amazing site to see for sure.

    Like Matt, I watched on CNN but I got my son out there with my dad and uncle and that really made up for it.

    My son enjoyed it and I think he understands the significance. He'll never forget.
    And I, I took the path less traveled by
    and that has made all the difference......yet...
    I have a feeling a handle of people are going to be very interested in what I post in the near future.
