Every time I take the trip into the City (NYC) I take a look at the Intrepid  moored in the Hudson River, and look for news on when they will getting the Space Shuttle they were awarded to display at the museum. I was a space geek when i was little so I'm pretty excited to be able to take a look inside a real shuttle, not that i would ever actually have the balls to go to into Space, unless it was the end of the Earth I guess...  Anyway, today I'm a little sad that we are no longer living in Brooklyn, because I missed an awesome sight.

I don't think I really gave much consideration to how they were going to deliver the shuttle to New York, I guess I thought they will bring it on a flat bed truck?!? But what actually happened was much more exciting and extreme... they flew that shit in!! 

The shuttle, weighing 150,000 pounds (now the fact that that was strapped to the back of a 747 scared the shit out of me, so I'm pretty glad that I wasn't in the city because I would have probably been hiding) did a double fly past for spectators, who gathered in their thousands.  Amazing sight, and I wish I had been there.
