ABOVE: In the first image, Discovery has completed the turn and is on the glide slope descending to the runway. The next two images show Discovery speeding by.

BELOW: The last view of Discovery is of the wheels coming down. The landing took place a few moments later out of sight beyond the trees. Discovery will now spend about a year being decommissioned before starting its new life as a museum exhibit at the Smithsonian Institution's National Air & Space Museum. < < < Back to Page One of Two
