Great pics!

I remember the old days when I helped protect the Space Shuttle. There was another launch facility at Vandenberg AFB, CA for the shuttles...but it was mothballed because of funding. They brought the shuttle out there a time or two...but had never launched it. They piggy backed it on the 747...quite a show.
