Odd 'Ride-sharing' Birds Pay Homage To Space Shuttle

The awe-inspiring aerial tour pulled Washingtonians out of their offices as the space shuttle rode piggy-back on a 747, and flew slowly over the Capitol, White House, the Mall and much of the Potomac River.

The historical moment brought nostalgic tears to many on-lookers as the Discovery, flew to its new retirement home, the Smithsonian’s Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly.

Even some birds were inspired by the moment and borrowed a page from the space shuttle's piggy back mode of transpo!  Check out these crazy daredevil birds ride-sharing Piggy-back - it's the only way to fly!?
