Default Shuttle Launch 11/16/09

Patty & our buddy Dave were able to Volunteer at the Kennedy space Center today, They got a real close up view of the Launch. It is always more exciting watching the launch live and in real time.
The most confusing is where to post , Places to Visit or Reasons I bought my Bird.............

Cool, lived in Florida for 35 years and have never seen a launch up close. I understand the noise is the best part too.

Great photos...thanks for sharing.

After missing launches for about 15 years (weather delays, technical delays, time to head home) the first year we got our BB we were down at Port Canaveral and NASA Kennnedy had a launch. We were at nearby Jetty Park. Local radio carried the launch live and we were on top of the bus.

If you never have seen a launch live, you got to. The sight is awe inspiring, and you not only hear but "feel" the sound!

I took this shot of Atlantis lifting off the pad yesterday - it was awesome to watch and hear.

A few more pictures,
Ya gotta see a launch, Only 5 more launches with this 1985 model shuttle. All Wannabees should find an Ole FC, like Stephens 77 (for Sale), Old FC's are as dependable as a Shuttle Rocket.
