|At 9 h 24 min 42 s a.m., after the execution of an orbital flight, went through the atmosphere on approximately 8000 km and with an advance of 1 s on the initial planning, the shuttle smoothly touches the landing strip and after a small race, it is immobilized at 9 h 25 min 24 s a.m. . The accompaniment plane passes overhead to also land on its landing strip. It is an extraordinary, precise and...||01/16/2007||623|
|This essential facility allowed NASA to train Apollo astronauts to fly in a simulated lunar environment. Neil Armstrong, Edwin Aldrin and 22 other astronauts used the facility to practice piloting problems they would encounter in the last 150 feet of descent to the surface of the moon. It was built in 1965 and was basically an A-frame structure with a gantry used to manipulate a full-scale Luna...||04/04/2007||621|
|The runway is huge compared to this tiny plane presumably landing on this runway.||11/24/2006||403|
|The new landing runway will be some 2,800 meters (9.240 ft) long. The centerline separation from the existing North runway will be approx. 1,400 meters (4.620 ft). This will allow for simultaneous landing operations on these two runways, which are not possible on the existing parallel runways because they are not far enough apart. ||08/25/2006||717|
|The Calgary Springbank Airport is a small regional airport dedicated to recreational/very light transit traffic. It is owned by the Calgary Airport Authority, which also controls the International Airport nearby. It has no landing fees, as opposed to the 8$ landing fee (And the inconvinience to bigger airplanes) of the International Airport, and is therefore a better choice for small aircraft l...||10/08/2005||411|
|Date: 5 January 2001 |
Type: Boeing 727-46F
Operator: Air Gemini Cargo
The cargo plane approached Dundo in favourable weather conditions. The airplane touched down just short of the runway. The right main landing gear collapsed after striking the raised lip of the runway. The Boeing 727 continued onto the runwa...
|Written off after emergency landing on 11 July 1989. She returned to ADD after landing gear didn't retract, brakes failed after touchdown and the Boeing overran the wet runway. ||08/08/2007||1,865|
|This is the space shuttle assembly building. The Shuttle and and its Fuel Tanks are prepared vertically within this huge building. To the north you can see one of the crawlers used to transport the shuttle to the launch pad. If you follow the tracks round you will come to the two launch sites over 4 miles away.||07/31/2005||1,448|
|World's first runway for extraterrestrial cultures.|
The two roundabouts connecting the municipality Houten with the A27 highway and their connecting road have been transformed into a runway for extraterrestrial cultures. The one roundabout is a UFO landing platform, a lighted smooth tar plate decorated with a giant letter U. On the other roundabout a control tower, which signals ...

|The Space Shuttle Enterprise (NASA Orbiter Vehicle Designation: OV-101) was the first Space Shuttle orbiter. It was built for NASA as part of the Space Shuttle program to perform test flights in the atmosphere. |
It was constructed without engines or a functional heat shield, and was therefore not capable of spaceflight. On September 17, 1976, the first full scale prototype was co...
|The embarkation point towards the top of the photo was designed for the embarkation of landing ships and tanks, that towards the bottom was for the embarkation of landing craft and troops. The circular structures towards the bottom left are fuel storage tanks. Many landing craft operated a shuttle service between England and Normandy taking on diesel from fuelling facilities at the hards.||12/08/2009||815|
