Where do you think the US stole the plans from. Well, it was the Brits that sold them and then sold them to us.

I've got a picture of Challenger on the back of a 747 when it made its last stop in San Antonio, on the way back to Florida, for its fateful launch in 1986. It's in a poster frame with the poem 'High Flight.' One of my most cherished belongings.
