Space Shuttle Enterprise
This one is for Bro. The picture is taken at the National Air and Space Museum Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center located near Dulles Airport in Virginia.
The Space Shuttle Orbiter is a full scale test vehicle used for flights in the atmosphere and tests on the ground.
The Shuttle was flown atop a Boeing 747 carrier airplane and also released and piloted to check out its systems and performance.
