Thanks to a reader for sending this cool report from The Hill:

“NASA announced Monday that the Space Shuttle Discovery will fly approximately 1,500 feet above various parts of the nation’s capital on April 17. As a point of reference, the Washington Monument is about 555 feet tall.

While the exact route is still to be determined, the shuttle — strapped atop the space agency’s custom Boeing 747 — should fly over the National Mall, National Harbor and Reagan National Airport.”
