NASA N905NA "Shuttle Carrier Aircraft" (4:1) Minecraft Map

On September 19, 2012, one of two NASA 747s outfitted to carry the space shuttle, NASA 905, took off from Edwards AFB carrying Space Shuttle Endeavour, on the final ferrying flight of a space shuttle on a shuttle carrier aircraft. NASA 905 delivered Endeavour to her new home in Los Angeles.

The Shuttle Carrier Aircraft (SCA) are two extensively modified Boeing 747 airliners that NASA used to transport Space Shuttle orbiters. One is a 747-100 model, while the other is a short range 747-100SR.

The Original SCA, N905NA, was acquired by NASA from Boeing in 1974, to begin flight testing on the shuttle prototype Enterprise. Following these tests, N905NA was outfitted to serve as a terrestrial transport for the space shuttles, carrying them between NASA's Dryden Flight Research Facility, Edwards Air Force Base, and Kennedy Space Center.

Following the Challenger Disaster, in 1988, NASA acquired a second 747-100SR for use as a Shuttle Carrier Aircraft. It entered service in 1990 as N911NA.

The Space Shuttle Endeavour was the final orbiter constructed, built using spare parts following the loss of Challenger in 1986. In May 2011, Endeavour flew her final mission, the second to last mission of the Space Shuttle Program.

Today Endeavour resides at the California Science Center in Los Angeles.
NASA 905 is currently on display at Johnson Space Center in Houston, TX, with a full scale shuttle replica named 'Independence' mounted on it.

The build is constructed in 4:1 scale, with full interior in the 747. The shuttle does not have interior, due to the 3 degree angle that it had to be given when placed on the SCA.

STS Endeavour does not posses any jet engines, same as any other STS, it was propelled by 3 Aerojet Rocketdyne RS-25 engines. Don't try to be smug when your are talking idiotic things.
