Touchdown after 674 days in space

one_shot_141020
This is a little late but kudos to the U.S. Air Force and Boeing for the successful flight of the unmanned mini-space shuttle X-37B Orbital Test Vehicle, which landed safely at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California on 17 October 2014 after 674 days in space. The reusable winged spacecraft launched on its secret mission from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station on 11 December 2012. This ended the third flight of the X-37B program along with being the second flight of the first OTV launched.
