Sweet! Great pics...

Yeah - I was in Tampa last week, hoping to get over to the Cape to see the launch but alas no.

Those are some good picts. My brother got some great shots of the launch as well. The one with the US flag and the shuttle is my favorite. Here is a link to his gallery http://www.spooney.com/

GREAT Pics... I grew up in Indialantic, FL. We could see launches from 30 miles away in my front yard. My Dad worked on telemetry (radios that brought other than voice communications) for Mercury and Gemini flights.

As a teen, I got hired to direct parking cars(that kid waving his arms) around NASA flights.

Part of the reason I'm a pilot today was launches like this one.

Thanks for bringing back the memories!!!

Jim,

And Jeff, Your brother takes some POWERFUL pics. I recognize one was in USA Today from Grande Lagoon (my neighborhood) after Ivan! But beyond that, he does incredibly moving work!

I stood on the beach here on Amelia Island and could see it clear as a bell. Amazing how well you can see it this far away. Great pics!

Next launch scheduled for Apr 19 and the last launch June 28. If any PFF'ers are coming down, shoot me a PM and I'll hook you up with a good land site or take you out on the boat.
