Space Shuttle Enterprise-Manchester Airport (1983)

Look what i found.

Space shuttle Enterprise has a ‘piggy back’ on top of a NASA 747 (SCA)
during her European tour on 7th June 1983.

These pictures were taken from the then civil aviation park on the southside
at Manchester Airport. (Runway 2 is there now)
with a vivatar 110 camera.

To clear up some confusion i have been reading.
The aircraft did not land it made one low and slow flypast.

  1. I was in St Anthony’s primary school and the headmaster brought the whole school out to see this once in a lifetime opportunity . It is still a huge topic being debated , because a lot of people who didn’t see it don’t believe it happened .
