Highview Students Submit Drawings of Space Shuttle

The space shuttle Enterprise piggybacked a ride on a 747 over New York Harbor and up and down the Hudson River in April. 3rd and 4th graders at Highview Elementary School in Nanuet submitted drawings of the shuttle to Nanuet Patch. If your kid draws one,

 

On what was a windy and rather brisk morning on April 27, residents in New York City and on up the Hudson River through Ossining and Tarrytown got the thrill of a lifetime as the Space Shuttle Enterprise hitched a ride atop a 747 for a flyover, passing by the world's most recognizable skyline and then past the cliffs of the Palisades before returning for a safe landing at JFK airport in Queens.

Built in 1976 as a prototype, the ship was never be used on a real space mission but instead played a vital roll in NASA's high altitude test flights and other testing modalities.

Check out photos of the Space Shuttle Enterprise on Patch in this article or have your kids draw their own version of it and add it to this photo gallery.
