[b]Super Guppy to Make 2nd Space Shuttle Trainer Delivery July 26[/b]
On Thursday, July 26, NASA's Super Guppy aircraft returns to Seattle to deliver the aft payload bay of The Museum of Flight's Space Shuttle Trainer. The Space Shuttle Trainer is the training mock-up on which every space shuttle astronaut has trained.
The oddly shaped Super Guppy will land at Boeing Field and taxi to the Boeing Military Flight Center (just south of the Museum of Flight) where the aircraft will be unloaded. Like the delivery of the Trainer's crew compartment last month, the payload bay will be moved onto an Air Force "60k Tunner" loader and then driven across East Marginal Way to the Charles Simonyi Space Gallery. The entire process will be easily visible from the Museum's east parking lot.
The Super Guppy will make one more trip to The Museum of Flight on August 9 to deliver the forward section of the payload bay which could be the aircraft's last journey to the region.
