Starting my live blog. I will be posting updates here all day. So keep refreshing this page. I am also posting updates on Twitter, so keep an eye there.
Wheels up: The Shuttle flight has lifted off. NASA posted this picture of the shuttle flight taking off from Florida. ETA in DC – 10AM.
8:18AM: Getting ready to head to the airport. Still deciding where to go. The two main choices are: Air & Space Museum parking lot or Dulles airport Daily LOt #1. The airport lot will probably give a better perspective of the fly-by. The Lowe’s parking lot in Chantilly will be great, but can’t get the actual landing from there.
8:46AM: Found this great set of pictures of the take-off by @FlyingJenny – Link to Flickr.
9:21 AM: Shuttle arriving 1 hour early. Time to get out!
10:04 am Finally getting to update. Missed flybye @ airport. Wa stuck in massive traffic jam outside IAD. Shuttle flew right over my car. Waiting for landing now. I am on an over pass over Rt. 28
10:17AM. Waiting @ IAD. Shuttle did multiple passes over The mall in DC. Maybe another pass over IAD before landing?
11:45AM: Finally at home. The Shuttle obliged and did one last fly by of the airport. Caught that on camera. Will post pictures soon.
