The space shuttle Discovery was sent from runway to museum on the NASA 747 Shuttle Carrier Aircraft at Washington Dulles International Airport on Thursday.

The operation was part of Discovery's transfer from NASA to the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum for display at its Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center, adjacent to Dulles.

Discovery was hoisted off the modified NASA 747 jet, which it rode piggyback on Tuesday from NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida to Dulles International Airport.
