That is a 747. They don't use it just to transfer the shuttles to their launch locations - they always take off from Cape Canaveral. And, clearly you've never heard of a high altitude launch. It's cheaper than lifting off from the ground but it takes hella longer.
And. No, that picture is not from Superman Returns. Can you fully not see the plane has the old NASA logo and it was clearly taken in the 70s-80s
Nigger face try showing me proof of a craft ever taking off like that, IT HASNT, its ONLY been used for fucking transferring, Launching like that would work wanna know why? try releasing that while flying in mid air, the shit is going to instantly fall on top of the transport plane or if they use its engine still end up destroying the transport plane, gtfo your full of shitness
the only way they would launch something like that is if the vehicle that was supposed to go into space was on the UNDERSIDE of the transport ship
1. you didn't prove anything. it doesn't take a fucking NASA employee (which i highly doubt your uncle is) to tell you that they transport shuttles like that. everyone knew that already. that post was completely irrelevant.
2. it's still possible
3. you all lose
4. i win
before you faggots contradict me. ponder this
a boeing 747 jet is 63 ft from tail tip to the bottom of the landing gear, so let's say that from the tail tip to the body is about 30 feet. it's cruising speed is about 580 mph. So, you're all telling me that a shuttle can't clear 30 feet moving upwards on a small angle at 790 feet per second? and I'M the idiot?
correct me if i'm wrong, pictures don't usually lie
Dude, in that picture the Shuttle IS connected, it may not look like it, but look at this video, it looks like it is lifting off from the picture because of the angle, but in the video, it is the same as the picture, but in video.
