Payload Bay

Met up with a group of sketchers from Kent today at the Museum of Flight.  At least two of them are members but still gave them my standard orientation.

Made a quick trip over to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Park to check the status.  Dedication is a week away.  It looked good with the flags flying.  A worker was installing the memorial plaques.

Plaque on the front of the statue:

I have several scenes I still want to sketch at the Museum.  I did one of them today.  I sat on the floor at the front of the Full Fuselage Space Shuttle Trainer’s payload pay.  The two humps on either side are the engine bells at the back.  Above is the Inertial Upper Stage which boosted satellites into orbit.  Above right is the half sized model of the Hubble telescope.
