Today NASA flew the final flight of the space shuttle Endeavour into Houston on
the back of a company 747. After landing at Ellington Air Force Base
the pilot of the 747 popped a hatch from the cockpit and flew the
Texas flag, the flag was upside down as in the international signal of
"distress". Was this on purpose, what was the pilot trying to say? The
local television commentators from Houston, Texas were mum on the fact
as they pointed out that the pilot was flying the Texas flag. It was
all being portrayed as a proud moment for Texas as a chapter in space
flight history was coming to a close. I don't have answers, just
questions. Is there more to this story?
