Discovery over Barrett Discovery Flies Over Barrett How lucky are we?!!!? This morning around 10 am, Space Shuttle Discovery, made her way over the Washington DC skies before landing at Dulles International Airport where she will later be transported to the Smithsonian Udvar-Hazy Air and Space Museum. While flying over the area, Discovery flew right over Barrett Elementary! Piggybacked to a 747 airplane, Discovery soared above the trees and our students and staff were treated to such a spectacular and historical sight! It was as if NASA ordered Discovery to fly right over us!! Below are some pictures from the event…enjoy!
