I went to see 2 shuttle landings at Edwards AFB, the first Columbia and the first Challenger.
Wonder if we were in the same visitor's area? I rode down there with a friend from high school. We crashed out in his Plymouth Champ, got up in the morning and watched it come in.
Awesome. Good memories, I bet. Living in Titusville, I saw too many to remember them individually. Launch Day was the most exciting to me. Everyone in town was involved with Kennedy Space Center in some way. So most of us gathered to watch the launches. We were let out of class that day to watch Challenger. My World History teacher had applied to be the teacher on the shuttle. He was never the same afterward.
