On its final flight, the 747 Shuttle Carrier Aircraft that bore Space Shuttle Discovery took the liberty of buzzing Capitol Hill and NASA was there to preserve the moment—then apply a filter and post it on the Internets.

The retired shuttle was being flown into Dulles International before travelling to its final resting place at the Smithsonian Institution where it will be put on permanent display.
