[b]Space Shuttle Trainer Crew Cabin Arrives June 30[/b]
The 28-foot-long crew cabin section of the Museum's full-scale space shuttle trainer is scheduled to be delivered to the Museum on June 30 via NASA's "Super Guppy" cargo plane.
The plane will be flown from NASA's Johnson Space Center (JSC) in Houston by Seattle astronaut Greg C. Johnson and is scheduled to arrive at 11 a.m. after a fly-by over Lake Washington and the Seattle Center.
Arriving with Johnson will be astronaut and University of Washington alumnus Janet Kavandi, Director of Flight Crew Operations at NASA JSC.
The Museum will celebrate the delivery of this significant artifact all day, beginning with a ceremony next to the Guppy in the Museum parking lot.
Guests include Washington state elected officials, former astronauts, NASA representatives and Museum Trustees. The Sounders Band will provide music, while Seattle TV personality Steve Pool will be Master of Ceremonies.
The ceremony is free and open to the public.
The Super Guppy will remain on display in the Museum parking lot for the weekend, with free tours with admission to the Museum.
