Shuttle Atlantis Returning to Kennedy Space Center

Ormond By The Sea
FL

 

Tuesday evening (June 2, 2009) residents and visitors of Florida's northeast coast were treated to an unusual sight - the space shuttle Atlantis perched atop NASA's special 747 aircraft flying at low altitude just off the beach.
Atlantis was returning to Kennedy Space Center after the STS-125 mission that serviced the Hubble Space Telescope. The shuttle had landed May 24 at Edwards Air Force Base in California due to the poor weather in Florida, where remnants of a severe weather system that caused massive flooding in east Florida was still lingering.
