NASA space shuttle trainer lands at U.S. Air Force museum
[i]A space shuttle mockup that was used to train astronauts, including more than 75 members of the U.S. Air Force, has landed in Dayton, Ohio, where it will go on display at the world's largest and oldest military aviation museum.
The Space Shuttle Crew Compartment Trainer 1 (CCT-1), which was used for more than three decades at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston, was flown onboard the agency's Super Guppy cargo plane to Wright-Patterson Air Force Base on Wednesday (Aug. 22).
Once offloaded from the aircraft on Thursday, CCT-1 will be moved into the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force (NMUSAF), which is located at the base. The museum plans to display the trainer inside its Cold War Gallery until its new Space Gallery inside a planned fourth building is ready late next year.[/i]
