Neat photos of Shuttle + 747

Reminds me of the Airfix model I had of the Shuttle/747 combo years ago, and when the real thing (which Shuttle was it?) flew along the glidepath to Manchester Airport, the only time we were allowed out of lessons at school onto the playing fields to watch something special.

Quite likely the "Enterprise" she went on a "piggy back" tour in 1983.

Some photos here and notes.
