Discovery heads home

Discovery has taken off from Edwards Air Force Base in Cailifornia. The shuttle is piggy-backed on a specially modified Boeing 747-100 Jumbo. The flight will be just 3 hours as the pair have to stop to refuel Altus Air Force Base in Oklahoma and should continue on to Florida over night, weather permitting.
