Shuttle Discovery Departs KSC As She Flies By Several Times

After 39 missions and 365 days, 22 hours, 39 minutes, 29 seconds in space, Shuttle Discovery departs Kennedy Space Center for her final time on the Shuttle Carrier Aircraft (SCA).

The SCA then performed several fly bys of surrounding area for KSC workers and lucky members of the public to view the unique flight of the Boeing 747 with Discovery attached.

Discovery will land at Washington D.C later today ahead of her final stop, the Smithsonian museum where she will remain for public display.
