Boeing 747-100 (N905NA)


The space shuttle orbiter Columbia OV-102 was delivered to Air Force Plant 42 at Palmdale, California on Saturday, September 25, 1999 on the back of Boeing 747 Shuttle Carrier Aircraft (SCA) N905NA. It was housed at Boeing's Orbiter Assembly Facility during an eightteen-month orbiter maintenance down period.

Great photo. Now one can also see what the shuttle looks like after re-entering our atmosphere and enduring intense temperatures in access of 1500°C.

N905NA is on display at Space Center Houston with the replica shuttle Independence mounted on its back.

Had the pleasure several years ago, along with my youngest son, to board a 747 ferrying the shuttle back to the Kennedy Space Center. It landed in Huntsville, AL and was parked on the back side of the airport. We were part of a group from NASA that got to enter the 747 and see the inside of the plane as well as a visit to the cockpit. My son got to sit in the co-pilots seat for a few minutes and a look out the window to show how high up off the ground we were. The steel beams in the cabin area of the plane are what the shuttle is attached to. You can see if the picture the front and rear anchor points. It was a sight to see!!
