Space Shuttle Discovery Flies Over Washington

History happens every single day and many of you witnessed this one (I did). The sight of the 747 and Space Shuttle over DC was amazing and it warrants a quick video post to share with everyone. The video was taken by the folks over the Department of Interior, when the fly by happened just two months ago on April 17th.

Here’s a great shot of it from NASA’s Flickr feed.
