Shuttle Landing Facility

Photos from a fast moving bus ride through the Shuttle Landing Facility at Kennedy Space Center made worse by the dark tint of the windows. The Shuttle Landing Facility is currently managed by Space Florida under an agreement with NASA.

The runway is the dark tarmac at left. Seventy-eight space shuttle landings took place here during the life of the program.

The air traffic control tower at midfield is at right. At left is the space shuttle mockup named “Inspiration” that used to be at the old Astronaut Hall of Fame facility across the Indian River Lagoon in Titusville. The mockup is being converted for educational use. The reflections from the bus windows is just an aggravation.
