098a - Discovery - Landing Approach

The final flight of Space Shuttle Discovery, as it lands at Dulles Airport in preparation for its new home at the Udvar-Hazy Center of the National Air and Space Museum.


This photo was taken on the third of three passes over the grounds, as it approached landing.

    Like this tight crop or just close up best. The ability to see detail is rewarding and also to compare the two machines.
