A few Shuttle picts from our dealer on Fri...........

Don't let the power lines in the photos confuse you,our building is on a corner with lines running along the front and around the corner,down the side street.
To make a long story short,the shuttle flew right over us,heading north a little after 10:40.You could actually see "Enterprise" on the nose with your naked eye.We got a better,closer view of it that most people that lined the Hudson.The pilot flew north up the Hudson to the GWB and turned on a NW heading which brought it over us.He made a wide,sweeping turn NW which brought him another 10mi to the Tappan Zee Bridge and then came South down the Hudson.He wasn't even at 1Kft,he may have been at 1500 over the Hudson but the river is almost 500ft below us.
The first two were taken by lot jockeys on the south side of the building in the extreme rear of it as the shuttle flew over us.
The third shot is the same one that 90% of us got when the Shuttle came back down the Hudson,southbound.
I feel honored to have seen this piece of history as close as I did.
