Plane Old Ben
Report from SAC member 06 Nov 2017
"Two Friends and I have hired two Cessna 172s in Florida for a ten day trip and had the unique experience of being allowed to overfly the Kennedy Space Centre runway, in formation, at 100ft agl. Flying north to south gives a fantastic view of NASA rocket assembly buildings and there is a shuttle display half way along the runway. There is currently no public access to this part of the Space Centre but Orlando Approach were contacted for permission. After a tense 3 minute wait, permission was granted with strict conditions... no touching the runway and no further east than the centre line. "
