Our space shuttle Discovery made its historic final voyage yesterday, April 17, 2012.

If you didn’t get to see the spectacular (truly no exaggeration) flight over Washington, D.C., including the aerial tour that pulled Washingtonians out of their offices to view the Discovery riding piggy-back on a 747.

The tandem flew low and slow over the Capitol, White House, the Washington monument to arrive at Dulles International Airport only a few miles from Discovery’s retirement home, the Smithsonian’s Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center.

    Thanks for this post. I was probably the only person to miss this one on TV yesterday. The live view for the folks in Washington, D.C., must have been amazing.
