i remember once in tampa i was walking my dog and something caught my eye and there was the shuttle blasting off clear as day all the way on the east coast. i watched it for a long time, saw the boosters pop off and ebverything
Just saw the space shuttle fly up and then back down the Hudson River. I am now officially 1 for 2 in seeing notable aircraft outside my window. Flight 1649 landed right outside my window and I was oblivious to it until it was down.
Pretty sad, I was watching it on tv for more than an hour from 3,000 miles away. And I watched the whole thing unfold before you even looked out your window.
I guess we can be all thankful that you were not driving one of the rescue boats.
