Big = NASA 747
Medium = STS-1 (Space Shuttle Columbia)
Small = T-38 chase plane

I took this photo using a Minolta XG-7 in April 1981. The photo has had the color corrected
using PS 7.0 and was cropped, but no other 'adjustments' were made.

Since I was lucky enough to grow up in Central FL, I was able tobe atthe very first shuttle launch at Cape Kennedy. I was also on the beach the day Columbia was returned to the Cape, piggybacked
aboard a 747. Here's one of two photos I was able to take that day.

Great shot! I was really hoping someone would come up with a picture of the modified 747 carrying the space shuttle. To get the chase plane with it is a bonus.

Good work and lucky you to be there!

This is one of those moments I'v said I've got to see. Lovely photo of a rare moment that captures the essence of the challenge.

Thanks for sharing.
