Daron Worldwide B747 with Shuttle Model Airplane
Specialized Shuttle TransportJet engine aircraft, four enginePainted plastic constructionScale: 1/200Operators: NASATime in operation: 1978-presentPost-World War II eraManufacturers: NASALength: 14 inchesWingspan: 12 inches. The U.S. Space Shuttle Orbiter is incapable of in-atmosphere flight on its own, and is simply too large to transport on land, so a pair of Boeing 747s have been extensively reworked and modified to carry shuttles from their landing site back to the Kennedy Space Center. The 747s were chosen for modification for a number of reasons, including the fact that a civilian model aircraft would allow NASA to own the transports rather than lease them from the U.S. Air Force. In the initial years of operation, during the Space Shuttle's testing, the first shuttle ferry still bore the American Airlines paint scheme that the aircraft was originally intended to operate with. NASA eventually replaced the coloration in the 1980s, and this is how the aircraft is modeled here, in a precisely detailed reproduction of NASA's own paint scheme. This high-quality model of a very unique aircraft will make a prized part of any collection.

The B-2 is remarkable in many ways besides its shape, most notably in its stealth abilities and its cost. The B-2 is one of the most expensive aircraft in the world, but its capability to sneak past hostile defense systems is seen as worth the price. Twenty B-2 Spirits are in operation as of 2009, and they are performing combat duties in both Afghanistan and Iraq. A detailed reproduction of this rare and distinctive aircraft, this model will be a showcase item in any collection.
