We saw it fly overhead. I have a few good pics that are rather huge but all the better

I heard that thing actually gains lift after strapping the shuttle on the back of it. And that it was a gutted mockup.

I really love the first pic, I mean thats like front page paper or Nat Geo worthy.

I dont know any details about the shuttle itself and that flight. I would imagine it was stripped somewhat to save weight and I could believe a minor change in lift, but Im just guessing.
