This morning, as the space shuttle Enterprise (OV101) moved up the Hudson river, I realized I’ve now seen Enterprise on land, sea, and air – every medium through which it has traveled, and taken a picture of it. For reference, here are photos of all three:
First up, a picture on land, where I saw Enterprise at the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum’s Udvar Hazy Center back in 2006.
Fast forward to a few weeks ago, when I caught the shuttle flying over New York before landing at JFK. I saw Discovery fly over DC as well, but don’t have pictures.
And finally, this morning I got to see Enterprise travel up the Hudson to its new home at the Intrepid Museum.
Now the only thing I missed was seeing a space shuttle from space (although Enterprise never actually flew into orbit). In a few weeks, I’ll be able to see it at it’s new home at the Intrepid Museum, so that I can say I saw it on Land, Sea, and Air all in New York.
