She can fit in my backyard.

I haven't been to the AF Museum in a while but from what I remember, the space exhibit really wasn't that great. They might've done some upgrades since then though.

With all the budget cuts, I don't wouldn't give her to the AF. Maybe Seattle.

I'd say Houston but they'd just complain about not getting a "real Shuttle" again.

Oh no if it was up to me, I wouldn't even consider Houston after how they've acted.

Interesting to think how the sun rises and sets in a matter of minutes when you're up there.

speaking of giving things to the AF a few years back I had a B-17 here in Memphis lovingly named the Memphis Belle. there was a group of experienced FedEx airplane mechanics, including my dad that pretty much saved it from under a tent on Mud Island, put it in the Millington Base to repair her as much as possible and try to open a Museum for her. I was able to get a real taste of the Flying Fortress because I helped in the little things. Sadly the AF caught wind of what we were doing and said if we couldn't raise the money for a museum (or something like that) they were taking it. I remember my dad telling me they had German and French people (military) coming over to see her was even part of an airshow, though she was a shell and in the middle of being repaired people could still come out and see her. in the end she ended up in the AF's hands. was a very sad day.

if that's from Jordan, she needs to stand in front, so we can get a reference of size. or have someone stand in front.

She's texting me pictures right now. Once she gets to a computer she can post better ones from her Canon.

There's some information I want to correct. I posted misinformation because I flat out read the article wrong.

Orion's second mission plans on being a rendezvous with an asteroid. It was requested to change Orion's first mission (EM-1) to a 25 day lunar orbit mission.

Still no word on whether it will be approved or not.

Orion's test flight is still scheduled for summer 2014.
