If you attach some hi-tech panoramic cameras to your car and endeavour to map the entire planet you're bound to see some pretty amazing things.

As such, an image has to be pretty special to grab our attention - like this one.

This is the Space Shuttle Enterprise piggy-backing a ride on a jumbo jet to her final ever destination at New York's Intrepid Museum.

The shot was captured over the New Jersey Turnpike as it approached Manhattan.

The Space Shuttle program was moth-balled by Nasa due to cost issues.

Not to worry though, if you have a spare few millions you can always buy yourself a piece of space hardware - an entire launchpad for example.

The Space Shuttle Enterprise exhibition pavilion has recently re-opened after being damaged in Hurricane Sandy.
