Congratulations to the Shuttle crew!

Post by jigr69 » Tue Aug 09, 2005 7:51 am

Just watched the shuttle make a perfect landing in near darkness at the Kennedy air force base http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/4134986.stm. I know its bad enough getting something that glides very well to make a perfect landing, as for that beauty travelling at 200MPH, takes skill.

Americans should be proud of the space shuttle, in a similar way us Brits are or were proud of Concorde....

:drinkers: all round for the shuttle crew!

It was -- that's why it landed in CA instead of FL.
