{look mom! a plane!}

Years ago in Kansas City, my mom made a huge fuss about the Space Shuttle riding piggyback ontop of a 747 jet plane. I don't remember if we actually made it out to the airport to view such a sensation (did we mom?), but I do remember seeing a picture of it in the newspaper.

Well, yesterday in San Antonio, we were given a treat! I didn't see it personally, but it was all over the news. We live very close to the airport, and so viewing airplanes coming down very close to the ground is an occurance we see every day several times a day. It's lost its magic for my girls who used to get extremely excited to see a plane when we would approach the KCI Airport to pick up family members. Now it's a shrug & a "oh, cool" said in a bored voice. :(

Well, the Space Shuttle came to San Antonio yesterday! I was hoping to catch a glance of it as it made its way over my house toward an Air Force base, but it was too cloudy. Here is a video of it taking off. SUPER cool! {note, I did not take this video}


  1. Wow, how did I miss that? (I live in SA too). That is very cool, I'm sad I missed it.

  2. how cool! I was able to see the Space Shuttle a few years ago.

  3. That is wonderful! I would love to see that someday! :)

  4. That is too cool. Lucky you.
