Aero-News Quote of the Day
"As you read this on the 16th day of April 2012 the space shuttle Discovery is being prepared for its final flight, not into space, but on the back of a 747 carrier aircraft in route to the National Air and Space Museum. Like Apollo, once again America has taken all that it had invested in the space shuttle and with barely a whimper from the American public who will in decades to come still be reaping the harvest of benefits from that program- we are simply casting it away to scrap or to reside in museums. Again we see an example of just how myopic we Americans remain."
