STS-2 Lands at EAFB. This view of the Space Shuttle Columbia was made prior to landing at Edwards Air Force Base (EAFB) from a nearby chase T-38 jet aircraft. Joe Engle and Richard Truly guide the vehicle toward a powerless but smooth landing on the desert area of EAFB. Mission specialist Kathryn Sullivan was seated in the rear station of the nearby jet to expose a series of approach and landing frames.

Date Taken: November 14, 1981
