The Daily Scrapbook 11/6/12 (August 1977) Enterprise Test Flight

Here’s today’s flashback:  From August 13, 1977, the test flight of the new Space Shuttle Enterprise.  This was a pretty big deal at the time and I remember being excited about this new technology!  Having it named “Enterprise” was a bonus, although it never went into space.   You may recall from this post that the Enterprise is now in it’s permanent home in Manhattan at the Intrepid Air and Sea Museum — hope it was safe from Sandy!  I definitely want to see it next time I’m there!
