More Atlantis Photos!
This page has been added due to the requests for more Atlantis Photos. I hope you find these interesting. Future plans include adding construction photos of the U.S.S. Atlantis as well!

In the air!
Left: Another view of the Atlantis B's maiden flight, this one taken by the camera of Mark Smeiska. Note that there is only the slightest hint of exhaust visible from the hybrid motor.

Right: Atlantis lowered gently to earth on a large parachute. Note the orange drogue chute as well as the extra long shock cord. (Norman Heyen photo)

A safe recovery!
