Sweet pictures. Thanks for the close-up. How long was the takeoff roll for that? NFW is 12,000, right?

Nice pics. I saw that biotch roll outa Edwards the yesterday. We tried to get as close as we could the night before. I guess you need an STS 126 card or some silly stuff. That's ok, we got to watch it taxi right by while we were preflighting the next day HA!

Still kicking myself that I didn't get to see this...

Anybody know whats on the interior of the 747?
I know the MX that travels with the plane sit in the remaining first class seats. I would guess that most of the rest is stripped though. They also had ballast in there, not sure where that fits in.
