NASA’s Super Guppy sits at Tinker Air Force Base, Okla., where it waits for a maintenance inspection by Air Force specialists. Project planners say the work should be completed by Aug. 22. NASA officials brought the unique aircraft to Tinker AFB because of the capability of Tinker’s workforce to inspect and repair the large aircraft. (U.S. Air Force photo/Debra Bennett)

  1. I used to see that airplane every time I went to Houston to visit the Johnson Space Center. It was generally parked at Ellington Field, not far from the Center. It doesn’t look much like a B-29 anymore, does it?

  2. I notice that those scamps in Houston decided to fly the old Lone Star in there before they sent it to the wilds of Oklahoma, too.
