YouTube

The space shuttle Discovery flew victory laps over Washington, D.C. yesterday near the White House, the Capitol and the Washington Monument as crowds bellowed cheered. It was shuttle’s final flight before it makes its new home at tomorrow at the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum annex near Dulles International Airport in northern Virginia.

The shuttle wasn’t flying on its own. It was strapped to the top of a modified jumbo jet when it took off early yesterday morning from Cape Canaveral, Florida. It flew over D.C. at an altitude of 1,500-feet, making it easy for the crowd below to see.

Riley Jacobson, a 12-year-old from Bethesda, Maryland was particularly impressed, saying, “It was pretty amazing. Pretty freaking crazy. It looked like it was inflated.”
