  4. I always wondered if I dreamt this – I was ten years old and was in the park at the end of our road. Awesome to see that it was real!

    I was at school at St Pius X high in Victoria Park Manchester Then the shuttle flew over and it changed everything. Thanks a lot NASA. I’ll never forget you or the space shuttle.

  6. I remember it well , we were parked up in the old viewing park stood on the roof rack on my land Rover.We used it as a platform to take pictures of the 747 with the Enterprise on its back.I can say it was an amazing sight and worth having a day off work for.

    I remember it well.
    I went to school in Collyhurst, about a mile from the city centre. The fly past was relatively close to us. The whole school watched in amazement.
    When I’ve mentioned it to friends of a similar age they think I’m talking dung.
