    Enterprise Lift-off From Dulles on final mission to orbit NYC

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     BigBenInVa says he could see the Enterprise at Dulles from his office window all week and wanted to find a good spot to take pictures of the historic final lift-off. He finally found that spot on the parking deck, where about 150 people were gathered to see the shuttle take off and all were very happy to see it in person.
    - lynnmariefra, CNN iReport producer

    This is the Shuttle Enterprise departing Washington Dulles on her final flight to New York. I saw the final shuttle lift-off of Atlantis from Cape Canaveral last July, and I was at Dulles in 1985 to see the Enterprise land, I saw the Discovery land at Dulles last week, and I saw the Enterprise take off again today. I have seen EVERY Shuttle landing and take-off at Dulles Airport. Both historic and sad at the same time. Salute!
