NASA space shuttle Discovery took a spectacular ride around Washington, DC today on its way to its final stop – Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum, Udvar-Hazy Center near Dulles Airport in Virginia. Discovery was mounted atop the space agency's 747 Shuttle Carrier Aircraft and made a number of photo-friendly low passes – at about 1,500 feet around parts of the capitol region. Here’s a look at the giant flying photo-op.
