Aeronautical Duo Departs Edwards, AFB

A modified NASA Boeing 747 jumbo jet with the space shuttle Discovery bolted a top departed Edwards, AFB in southern California this morning in a sunrise take off from where the spacecraft landed one week ago.

The massive 747-200 aircraft throttled up her multiple engines and sped down runway 04 at Edwards, slowly lifting the nose up first before rising up to begin a nearly 2,500 mile journey to the Kennedy Space Center.
