First impression of these photos gives me the distinct feeling the poor ship is being gutted like a fish. However, it's exciting to know she'll be dressed up again down the road for all to see up close.

I think this is as sad as when the SR-71 was retired. I got my first look well it was the tip of her tail on her overland from Palmdale to Edwards back in 83. I hope I get to see one more landing at Edwards before this is over.
