Space Shuttle Discovery comes to DC!

I was so excited when I found out Discovery was coming to its permanent home at the Dulles Air and Space museum! So here are the pictures I took of it flying by and of the welcoming ceremony. Please also see my Portfolio page to see the pictures I took in May 2008 of the Discovery Space Shuttle launch! Welcome Discovery!!
