Chills ran through my body … the theater screen lifted and Atlantis was directly in front of me. I cannot explain the sensation that passed though me as I saw the shuttle only a few feet away. No image can replicate what I saw or felt. Memories of working with NASA as a Boeing technical representative in Washington, DC during the Shuttle Program’s “hey days” ran through my mind. Memories of watching the Challenger launch along with my Boeing associates brought tears to my eyes. As I walked around Atlantis, my whole body was shaking. It was almost impossible to hold my camera up for a steady image. After about a half hour I had settled down enough to take a few images. I will add more images In future posts. Like I mentioned earlier, I will not be able to create the image in my mind or the feeling in my heart when I saw this beautiful Bird.
