It was really a sad day down here as well. The end of a legend. :(

The other sad part, is that I don't know if it's gonna be easier with Endeavour since that will be the last time a Space Shuttle will ever be in the air.

It's carrying part of the Space Shuttle training simulator from Houston that trained all the astronauts for shuttle missions.

And back to OPF-2 where Endeavour is completing Transition and Retirement procedures.. Endeavour had her heat shields around her RSMEs installed this week.

Yup! It's the "Super Guppy" - bringing the second section of the trainer. The 3rd section comes August 8th,and will most likely be the last flight for the Super Guppy.

Given enough power... anything can be made to fly.

I'm suprised they didn't contract Boeing to use the Dreamlifter to transport it.

You guys enjoy that thing! I hear it's a heck of a simulator.
