(Source: Reuters Archive. Eagle Independence, blasts off from Anderson Peninsula, July 4th, 1999. The only Eagle to be named instead of issued a numerical fleet designation, she would be lost some ten weeks later, in the event that would come to be remembered as Breakaway.)
Warm wishes to fellow Eagle nuts enjoying Independence celebrations stateside.
Is this a good time to remind you the Eagle was designed by an Englishman? :twisted:
