Jeff Cook (Over Mt. Rainier, Wash­ing­ton) | Au­gust 2012. “NASA chose the Mu­seum of Flight to be the re­cip­i­ent of the full-size trainer used by all space shut­tle as­tro­nauts at the fa­cil­ity in Hous­ton,” says Cook. “Be­cause of its size, the trainer had to be moved by one of the largest trans­port craft avail­able, the Aero Space­lines B-377-SG/SGT Su­per Guppy. It took three flights to de­liver all the com­po­nents.”
