Phantom Ray

Bridgeton, MO (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: Despite a frigid snow storm rolling through the area on Sunday, the Boeing Phantom Ray sits proudly on top of one of NASA's Space shuttle carrier aircraft Monday morning. It will be transported to NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center in California possibly Tuesday. This shot was taken across the landing strips of the St. Louis Airport with heat distorting the image. It took a test flight later today for about 50 minutes to prove it is airworthyness for the trip. Cropped from original.

Thanks for the kudos! The windchill in St. Louis was around 8 above when I took this. This is the first time anything but a space shuttle orbiter has been transported on either of NASA's 747's. I just measured the distance I was from the 747 when I took this shot and it was about 30 feet shy of a mile.
