SCA 905

When the Space Shuttle needs to fly between terrestrial locations, NASA uses its Shuttle Carrier Aircraft (SCA) to do the job. NASA has two SCAs, 905 and 911 (905 was on display at the airshow). Both are converted Boeing 747s purchased from commercial passenger carries (NASA bought 905 from American Airlines).
