There I was...

    ...minding my own business watching TV when "Texas Flyer" called and alerted me to the shuttle landing at FNW in twenty minutes (it looked as though many people didn’t know it was headed here). I hurried and gathered my stuff, bolted out the door and drove all the way to west Ft. Worth to get the departure (I missed the landing but that’s okay). It was worth the 40 minute drive and then the two hour wait… I would do it again in a heartbeat. Thanks for the heads up Flyer.

      That is so awsome! Great work capturing the event with total professionalism. I'm so jealous! I've yet to see this myself...

      I missed it again! Of all the years I've lived in North Texas, I have yet to see the space shuttle be flown in and out.

      I was able to see it while on the ground, but didn't see it in flight. Great job!

      Great shot!! I got a shot of N905NA and Atlantis a couple of years ago. I remember the feeling of just breathlessness when I saw it for the first time. Unreal!

      It still bums me out that hardly anyone noticed my photos from this. I was so excited about them too.
