Remarks: The NASA DC-9 is the "Path Finder" when the NASA 747 Shuttle Carrier carries the Space Shuttle on its back. It leads the 747/Shuttle Carrier 30 minutes ahead to make sure the weather along the Carriers route is safe for transporting the shuttle through it. "NASA 932" is seen here arriving 15 mins prior to the arriving of the 747/Spaceshuttle at TTS.
