Shuttle Atlantis Takes Off From Dryden (6/1/09)

Hey guys, some added photos of the flight, taken by an ace photographer at Dryden. Check it out!

 

Caption: Southern California's high desert provides the backdrop as one of NASA's two modified 747 Shuttle Carrier Aircraft ferries Space Shuttle Atlantis back to the Kennedy Space Center after departing NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center at Edwards Air Force Base. Atlantis had landed at Edwards to conclude shuttle mission STS-125, the final servicing mission of the Hubble Space Telescope.
