That's a cool set of photos. I'll never forget back in 81, I was going to work in Oklahoma city and a man on the radio shouted I can see it! I looked up and there was, the Columbia on the back of that plane.

Thanks ussery... The Columbia landing was pretty exciting. People heard the double sonic booms and looked and looked trying to see where she was. When people started to yell "There it is!" I was desperately searching in the bright desert sky. When I finally saw it I then had to find it within my viewfinder.

I now think the lens I rented may have been a 1000mm as it was a mirror telephoto and we were positioned pretty far away from the landing.
