Description

The space shuttle Discovery rests atop the Boeing-747 Shuttle Carrier Aircraft (SCA) just hours after landing at Dulles International Airport. This particular aircraft was the first ever to transport a shuttle, after being converted from a passenger plane for American Airlines in the early 1970s. It has ferried the space shuttle over 200 times.
