    On a side note, I had taped(DVR'd) Cnn's (the NASA channel is not available on FIOS) coverage of the arrival and watched it this morning. They had nice footage, however, when it came for the actual landing, their footage was horribly pixalated! It looked as though they went from HD to something that my cell phone would have recorded. What a disappointment! I don't know if they were correct, they stated that the SCA/Shuttle combination weighed less than a standard 747 filled with passengers, yet said that the shuttle weighed 150,000 lbs. Just a bit of useless info that i thought that I'd pass along if anyone was interested.

    Yep, WCBS had a camera on the south side of the runway as well which was highly pixalated. It must have been using some sort of cell connection like LTE or maybe microwave.

    The three most common expressions in aviation are, "Why is it doing that?", "Where are we?" and "Oh Crap".

    For the record, N905NA did a fly by over 4R at EWR. On final approach, the sun went away.

    The wind was definately from the south and west. After the fly by, the aircraft waiting for departure made a u turn and taxied to the 22's. It looked like the tower waited to avoid a runway 29 fly by.

    Someone posted on the Washington list that the takeoff weight from KSC was 709K for the SCA/Disco combo. Enterprise was a little lighter and obviously there was less fuel for IAD-JFK than the Florida-IAD leg, so you can do the math.

    Just wanted to say thanks to everyone for sharing their knowledge and the images...

    It was an incredible thing to witness and I'm glad to have seen it...



    While I was waiting...






    Coming back down the hudson



    Not Super Exciting, but the thing flew right over us...


    I really thought it would be a little lower in the sky and hoped to get an angle on it with some skyline... but it came in close to the shore on NJ and really I was just at an angle that couldnt get what I wanted.


    Stan's composite is nice... I couldnt execute both the tight shot and the wide angle so I went tight.
