Space Shuttle Landings

Space Shuttle Landing at KSC

Prior to 2001, people were allowed to view space shuttle landings at Oak Park on Kennedy Space Center property (near the end of the space shuttle runway).  Once while waiting for a landing, I particularly remember an Air Force jet flying low over us to clear the air space.  The jet was so loud that we ducked and hit the ground!  Once we heard a double sonic boom, we knew the shuttle was coming.  It was amazing to see a space shuttle fly right over our heads!
