Another Shuttle Mockup

Credit: Bill Novak
I just learned that the old Rockwell/Boeing Downey facility is now home of Downey Studios, an independent film studio (an has been for a while). The site was established in 1929 and was home to the Navajo Missile, Apollo Spacecraft, and the Space Shuttles. There is another Shuttle mockup there, which is shown above  The mayor of Downey wants to refurbish the mockup and incorporate it into the Columbia Memorial Space Center.  I hope this happens.
