Discovery Comes To Dulles [hd video]

On April 17, 2012 the space shuttle Discovery hitched a ride on the back of a 747 jumbo jet especially designed as a space shuttle transport. It landed at Dulles Airport in Washington, DC, and the process to deliver Discovery to its new home at the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center got under way. Through the eyes of a veteran NASA tour guide and aficionado, DJ Emmanuel, we get a behind-the-scenes view of what it was like to be there on such an historic and exciting day!
