The Once and Future Hangar Queen

I did the Kennedy Space Center tour back in January, and it included the Vehicle Assembly Building. Inside was Endeavor being prepped for delivery. I'm hoping to get some great shots of Discovery being delivered to the Udvar-Hazy next week. (Ed. Note: E. J.'s photo was submitted a few weeks back.)

Shot with a Canon T1i; cropped and contrast adjusted.
