There have been some great photographs online showing the last flight of the Shuttle Discovery atop a modified Boeing 747 Shuttle Carrier Aircraft. Headed to its resting place as an exhibit at the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum Udvar-Hazy Center.
This is one of my favourites.

There’s something about shuttle launches. And there’s also something about night photography.
