On April 17,2012 Space Shuttle Discovery made her final flight to her permanent home at the National Air and Space Museum, Steven F Udvar-Hazy Center at Dulles International Airport. The following photographs show Discovery on her two passes of Dulles and on final to land at Dulles. It was a sad day but, I'm glad I witnessed and photographed the event.
