On a gorgeous February late afternoon, a BNSF shuttle grain train heads west across the bridge over Lake Pend Oreille and into East Algoma, Idaho.

Editor's note: happy Friday, Flickr friends! While we can't all get this kind of sky view, hope you get to enjoy the waning gibbous moon in the skies over Earth this weekend.

CITY OF DREAMS MANILA SHUTTLE SERVICE (FROEHLICH TOURS)

 

Bus no:..

Manufacturer: Xiamen Kinglong United Co., Ltd.

Model: XMQ6902Y

The Lambda Class Shuttle is one of my favorite spaceship designs with its birdlike look. I like the elegant curves and the transformative wing mechanism, furthermore the landing gear setup with just two legs is exciting!

 

With the introduction of all the recent new parts I was able to create the round forms and fluent lines of the original studio model.

 

It is difficult to find exact reference material for this ship, most of the blueprints and imagery, which are available online, are not correct to the original studio models. I've ended up using my own photographs I've managed to take at the amazing Star Wars Identities exhibition.

 

The model is a scratch build MOC, there are some familiar elements to the LEGO UCS model as well as Dmac's www.flickr.com/photos/dmaclego original design. My main focus was an accurate cockpit design (it’s still not perfect but I like my solution), the inclusion of play features, a full interior completed with PF functions, lights and more.

 

The model features:

- motorized foldable wings

- boarding ramp

- retractable landing gear

- detailed cockpit and interior

- turning canons

- landing lights

- working sublight engine

 

It is bigger than the official set with 94 cm in width and 102 cm in hight (on the stand). I've used up to 6000 parts for the model including an PF medium motor and 7 PF lights.

 

For the scenes I've used secondary builds, the Death Star ll and a midscaled Star Destroyer based on Brickdoctors www.flickr.com/photos/legoarts/ design both of which are adding several hundred parts. For the Endor scene I've used around 10000 parts. Even the planets used for the space scenes are based on LEGO parts (Planet series: Endor and Tatooin for the red Planet).

 

I'm happy how my build came together, I hope you like it as well! Thanks.

Shot Location: Lung Center of The Philippines, Quezon City

What an incredible moment we had today when the Shuttle flew over many landmarks in California. We were fortunate enough in Los Angeles for many fly overs and 2 of them happen to fly over our Campuses. This picture above is from the flyover downtown Los Angeles heading over Exposition Park where the Shuttle will call home in a few days. The picture below was taken by one of my students who is running an Instagram Contest for this event. One of our campuses is above the Getty Center so the view was great for the flyover. This event excited so many and a lot of pride was felt. Definitely a day to remember.

It was great to witness this event this morning in Houston!

This event got me out of my pneumonia sickbed today…. glad I made it to the event.

  

I used to work for a company called Spar aero space. I got to work on parts of the Canada arm and dedicate this shot to that mission of the last shuttle flight.

#Discovery flew 39 space missions during its operational life, the first in 1984 and the last one in 2011. More spaceflights than any other #space #shuttle, or any other #spacecraft.

Had a little fun build with some trans clear and trans light blue bricks to make a hologram of the Imperial Shuttle. A fun and challenging build as I was extremely limited to trans parts. Illuminated from the bottom to give it a glow without illuminating the surroundings.

This image from 1996 shows space shuttle Atlantis as it began the slow journey to Launch Pad 39A from the Vehicle Assembly Building. This dramatic view looking directly down onto the shuttle atop the Mobile Launcher Platform and crawler-transporter was taken from the VAB roof approximately 525 feet (160 meters) above the ground.

Was quite the experience to behold this piece of history today.

Well, since NASA is having difficulty launching Endeavour into orbit, I'll go back to March and show a scene from Discovery. I had hoped that this moment would occur. The launch was several minutes after sunset, so during the ascent, the space shuttle reentered daylight. What a view!

An orbital hangar containing four bays for small shuttles such as the ever-popular LL-290.

 

This hangar was first displayed at the Brickish weekend at the National Space Centre, 10-11 May 2014. Robots courtesy of Peter Reid (Legoloverman).

I took 3 hours off of work today so I could head to the National Mall and take photos of the Shuttle Discovery as it made it's final trip to the Udvar-Hazy Center. I went to the base of the Washington Monument which turned out to be a fantastic viewing location. The plane carrying the shuttle passed over 3 times. This photo was taken on the second pass. It got so close that I didn't even have to crop the photo to get this composition.

 

This picture is composed of 3 images (processed from a single RAW image) merged to HDR in Photomatix Pro.

The Space Shuttle came to Los Angeles on Sept 21. One of the flbys was very close to where I was. I can't believe I chopped off a bit from the end of the best shot. Anyway, pretty cool to see it so close.

Omgeleide Blerick-Shuttle, met RTB lok 189206.

Door uitloop van werkzaamheden in Tilburg, werd er via Den Bosch en Geldermalsen naar het Rotterdamse gereden.

En, de groeten terug :-)

I knew I needed to be on the south side of the bridge for the best light. I then searched around for an hour for a suitable foreground. I liked the lines of the roadway, the counter balance of the boat under the bridge. I'm very happy with the finished product.

Original caption: KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. -- Space Shuttle Discovery is silhouetted against the early morning sky as it is makes its 3.4 mile trek atop a crawler/transporter to Launch Complex 39A from the Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB). There, in high bay 1, Discovery was mated to the first Space Shuttle super lightweight external tank/solid rocket booster stack. Discovery will be launched on mission STS-91, concluding Phase I of the joint U.S.-Russian International Space Station Program, on June 2 with a launch window opening around 6:10 p.m. EDT. This will be the ninth Shuttle docking with the Russian Space Station Mir, but the first Mir docking for Discovery. The STS-91 flight crew includes Commander Charles Precourt; Pilot Dominic Gorie; and Mission Specialists Wendy B. Lawrence; Franklin Chang-Diaz, Ph.D.; Janet Kavandi, Ph.D.; and Valery Ryumin, with the Russian Space Agency. Andrew Thomas, Ph.D., will be returning to Earth with the crew after living more than four months aboard Mir
