    Eagles on High

    Stardate 4304.0

    NASA and the US Government were taking no chances with the launch today. They had planes ready to go in an instant in case of any trouble. You can see images here of F-15 Eagle jets on patrol in the skies over the Kennedy Space Center just after the last launch since 9-11...

    These are file photos from before as the launch pad is Pad "A" and not Pad "B", and there are other tell-tale signs. However, a memo from NASA said:
    "A flight of US Air Force F-15 Eagle Jetfighters helped to provide air cover over Kennedy Space Center and the shuttle launch pad against terrorist attacks during yesterday's launch countdown of the Space Shuttle Discovery."
    Well, that's good I suppose ;) They make very cool pics anyhow, whether the planes were in the air or not!
