The Space Shuttle Landed Right Next To Me!

It was early 1994, and I was on my way to a job interview at Chrysler Corp. in Huntsville, AL. Right after the plane landed, and was taxiing on the runway, the pilot announced "Ladies and Gentlemen, if you look out the plane's right window, you will see the Space Shuttle landing momentarily". Everybody thought the pilot was just joking, but on the very next runway, the Shuttle indeed landed, piggybacked atop the 747. Apparently, the duo was on its way back to KSC, and stopped in Huntsville for an airshow ( and to get fuel undoubtedly). I had wondered why so many people were gathered on the ground, looking to the sky when we were landing. It was quite a spectacle!
