N901NA (cn 66-8381) I gotta throw another one into the hat from our big NASA day yesterday. Although you can't tell by looking at it, the building in the background is a NASA building situated on the north campus of the facility, and potentially slated for demolition soon.

Again, a great photo. The T-38 is art in motion.

As for the NASA building, in my humble opinion, it (along with a lot of the NASA Glenn/Lewis grounds) should be placed on the National Register of Historic Places. There is simply too much U.S. aviation history that occurred there to have it simply torn down.

Yeah, that's him alright! The "Polish Pilot!" He had to sell his company last year after a stroke, but he's doing well. Check the shots from Middlefield to see some of his work...here's one: http://www.opshots.net/gallery2/index.php?page=photos&id=13983

Chuck, my grand-father worked at NASA until 1973 and had an office in that building also for a time. I was talking with my dad today and he said your dad built ultralights.

Thanks! I would sure hate to see those buildings go...I remember seeing Captain Penny, Captain Kangaroo and Barnaby in the auditorium there when I was a kid and my Dad worked at NASA! BTW...I went to high school with Mike Good (he was a year or so behind me) but his sister was in my class!

Great shot. I didn't get over for the crew briefing this time. This was the crew that I saw launched in May on Atlantis. Mike Good was on that crew. FYI, we've been told we're staying in that building at least until Aug 2011.
