Dunner, nice shots, but I still think Houston was screwed on the shuttle deal. Why did NYC need a shuttle?

There are 3 shuttles on the east coast, one on the west and NONE in the middle of the country. If anything, one should have been placed in the DFW area or maybe St. Louis.

A building for a space shuttle was built at the museum of flight at boeing field, Seattle, but the one shuttle on the West coast went to LA? Doesn't make sense, but then again it was likely a political decision.

Seattle should strive to obtain, for their flight museum, one of those modified Boeing 747's that were used to transport the shuttle. Seems like a natural, with Seattle being the home of Boeing. Quite an aircraft in and of its self.
