SEATTLE — The unusually large cargo plane carrying a full-scale plywood mock-up of a space shuttle crew cabin has arrived in Seattle.
Puget Sound 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 with the trainer.
Museum officials said that by October visitors will be able to walk through the trainer to see where astronauts trained for their missions.
