I've always loved aviation. As a child, gazing at the airplanes in the books my parents had bought me, I would spend countless hours imagining that I was behind the controls and soaring into the huge expanse of space. The first time I saw the 747-shuttle carrier, I was about 9 or 10, and I couldn't help wondering what the Wright brothers would think of two large metal planes connected together and taking flight. Anyway, the copyright for this photo is unknown. If anyone knows who took it let me know so I can credit them.
