Awesome Pictures of the Last Shuttle Launch Taken From Airplane

To those of you who thought that picture on the front of the St. Pete Times in May was a once-in-a-lifetime shot, well, we have another couple of them. We don't use the word awesome very often. This, though, inspires awe.

New Hampshire journalist Chad Graff tweeted two pictures he said his brother took on a flight to Miami. The first picture is a breathtaking shot of the exhaust slowly trailing off into space, and the second appears to show the shuttle, albeit from farther away than the May photograph taken of Endeavor by New Jerseyite Stefanie Gordon. There aren't many other words needed. Click for larger images. Vaya con dios, Atlantis.
