NASA Super Guppy Crew Compartment Arrival

A few weeks ago we talked with you about NASA’s Super Guppy aircraft and the measurement project that Lansmont undertook in preparation for the Space Shuttle Trainer’s trip from Houston to the Museum of Flight in Seattle.

Here’s video of the FFT Crew Compartment arrival in Seattle. The Super Guppy performs a low level fly-by for the spectators and then circles around to land.

The multi-leg flight took 4 days – with a couple of overnight stays along the way. The Supper Guppy flew at a speed of about 240 kts and an altitude of 12,000 to 14,000 feet.
