ace you nigger, they use that to transfer the shuttle to his launch location -.- but with a big ass 747
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
