Space Shuttle Flying Directly Over My House Video
 
I have been waiting all morning with the cameras set up, and then when the big moment came it was not where I expected, hence the brief video. The flight path to Moffett Field is right out off of the deck to the East (I have seen Air Force One fly by for years), the Shuttle flew just a bit North though so we were caught off guard.

I can't figure out how to attach the video. Too big? Its 6,405 Kb

I'll never forget when they had the old shuttle on display at the New Orleans worlds fair. It is MUCH bigger when you are standing ten foot from it, especially when you are a kid. The little windows just looked out of scale.

Los Angeles where it will be put on permanent display. It has to be transported over city streets to get to the museum.

I have been in the static display in Houston, but this was much, much better!

I find the launch transporter to be even more impressive.
