Save the Date! May 27, 2020 USA Crewed Space Launch!

A decade in the making, NASA and SpaceX have set May 27 as the target launch date for the first crewed space mission to launch into orbit from U.S. soil since the retirement of the space shuttle in 2011.

NASA astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken, two veterans of the shuttle program, will ride SpaceX’s Crew Dragon spacecraft into orbit on top of a Falcon 9 rocket from pad 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. That’s the same historic launch facility used by the last space shuttle flight.

Liftoff time on May 27 is expected to be around 4:32 p.m. EDT (2032 GMT), when the Earth’s rotation brings the launch pad under the orbital plane of the International Space Station.

Mary Lou Bigelow Attends Grand Opening of the TWA Hotel at JFK

Mary Lou Bigelow, former Trans World Airlines (TWA) flight attendant, attended the grand opening of the TWA Hotel at JFK on September 28, 2019 and from October 2-6 joined 1000+ attendees for a TWA Silver Wings reunion.
The landmark TWA Flight Center is a fabulous building designed by Eero Saarinen. The historic front building has been totally renovated but keeps the charm of the 1960s with bundles of TWA memorabilia, including all of the uniforms throughout the years. Two hotel wings house 512 rooms and are set to the rear.
Note the L-1649 Constellation parked behind the window of the sunken lounge. Climb the stairs and sip a cocktail while checking out the cockpit. Sorry, but it won’t take off – it is minus engines!
There is lots to see and do at the hotel – so don’t miss this venue for a stay or just a tour on your next trip to New York!
