Trucks Towing the Shuttle Columbia

Original caption: Palmdale, California: As dawn broke the space shuttle orbiter Columbia was already moving down the road toward Edwards Air Force Base, a 40 mile journey requiring nine hours to negotiate. When Columbia is launched into orbit next November, the spacecraft will be able to circle the Earth in 90 minutes. The shuttle is being taken to Edwards AFB where it will be mounted on a Boeing 747 for the flight to Kennedy Space Center in Florida for the orbital launch.
