I was just reading that the Space Shuttle Discovery may not be able to land in Florida because of the weather and their second choice is always Edwards.
I remember the last time it landed in California was back in ’92 and the sonic boom rattled folks here in LA (it felt to me like someone had just landed on the roof).
So, my big question I’m putting out there is, if the shuttle were to land at Edwards, where’s a good place to go watch it? Have any of you seen it land (hell, tell me your launch stories too!)? This might be the last flight of a Space Shuttle and if it’s not too tricky, I’d like to see it come back to earth in our back yard. I haven’t found anything that would give us precise directions as to how it would approach Edwards, what time and viewing information.
