An unusually large cargo plane carrying a full-scale plywood mock-up of a space shuttle crew cabin arrived Saturday in Seattle.
Puget Sound area residents got a glimpse of the so-called Super Guppy as it flew at low altitude around the region before heading to Boeing Field.
With cargo space that is 25 feet tall, 25 feet wide and 111 feet long, the Guppy was uniquely equipped to carry the Space Shuttle Trainer.
Seattle’s Museum of Flight placed fifth in a competition to land the four retired space shuttles. So NASA awarded the museum the trainer. Museum officials say that by October visitors will be able to walk through the trainer.The Associated Press
