The SCA and Shuttle Enterprise is parked partially underneath a deicing hangar lined with thermal infrared heaters. In normal operations, aircraft are taxied through this structure to deice prior to departure in winter weather. The SCA can only taxi partway in due to the Shuttle's tail being well above clearance.
A huge thanks goes out to the NASA SCA crewmembers who have become fans of my photography and gave me the oppertunity to travel to New York's JFK International Airport and see NASA's operations onboard and around the SCA and Space Shuttle Enterprise. I was invited to stay for the demating, but unfortunately I had other obligations the next day back home in Washington, DC. NASA was kind enough to let me bring along a few lucky friends of mine to see everything up close, in person. I love how excited NASA is about their programs, and how eager they are to share it with others and get the public excited!
