This foto shortchanges both Porto–container vessel at Howland Hook–and whatever aircraft flies above it.  Which aircraft . . . you may wonder?

This one!!  Or these ones.

Astride the Boeing’s shoulders is OV-101, the engineless shuttle that never entered space, escorted

by a T-38 chase plane.

They checked out the Bayonne Bridge and

scoped out progress on the still second-tallest building in Manhattan,

as closeup as they could . . .

and flew over Newark Liberty International before landing at Kennedy.  The foto below is a clue to my special platform for these shots . . . to be revealed tomorrow.

All fotos by Will Van Dorp.

Check out John Skelson’s fotos here.  And great landing fotos here by John Huntington.  Still more here by Mai Armstrong.

Ultimately,Enterprise will be barged upriver and be preserved as part of the Intrepid Sea, Air, and Space Museum.  To make room for OV-101, the museum has sent three aircraft upriver, literally: MiG-15, a Douglas F-3D Skyknight, and a Supermarine Scimitar.  To see them barging upriver to ESAM, be at the Waterford Flight of Five tomorrow.

And on the subject of preservation, a request . . . tug Pegasus and Lehigh Valley 79 need your vote to demonstrate the power of social media and, thereby, win a grant.  Vote DAILY!!
