Academy ACA-12708 – 1/288 Scale – Space Shuttle & NASA Transport Plastic Model Kit
While the Space Shuttle can travel faster and farther than any other aircraft yet flying, thanks to the huge external boosters that push it, it is not capable of flight outside of a space voyage. To provide for “local” hops. NASA obtained a giant Boeing 747 from American Airlines, and altered it to carry the shuttle in a special cradle mounted to the fuselage. The 747 was originally used to test the aerodynamic stability of the shuttle but is now often used to transport the shuttle from one location to the next.
