A gigantic piece of space history is set to splash down at Seattle’s Museum of Flight on Saturday, June 30! The Super Guppy space shuttle trainer, will fly low and slow over Lake Washington and Elliott Bay before landing at Boeing Field.
Actor James Doohan, Star Trek’s ‘Scotty’, called the Seattle area home until his death in 2005. Today his ashes were successfully launched into space on the first commercial supply ship rocketed toward the International Space Station.
After a 30-year career training crews for every shuttle mission, NASA’s FFT (Full Fuselage Trainer) is leaving its long-time home at the Johnson Space Center in Houston TX, bound for The Museum of Flight.
