Seattle-bound space shuttle sim segmented for shipping
[i]NASA began this week taking apart a full-size mockup of the space shuttle in preparation for shipping it next year to Seattle, Washington.
The Full Fuselage Trainer, or FFT, at Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas is being given to Seattle's The Museum of Flight for display. Used for 30 years as a test bed for shuttle upgrades and for astronaut training, the FFT is the oldest and largest of Johnson's shuttle trainers having been built in the 1970s.[/i]
