Can anyone provide a link to a detailed log of shuttle orbiter ferry flights? I'd like to know dates of all overnight stops. I can find beginning and end dates for each ferry, but info on the stops is sketchy.

  • $\begingroup$ Shuttle Ferry Flight Blog has overnight info and more, problem is first entry was posted on May 29, 2009. Some older SSO ferry flights are listed in Space Shuttle Chronology starting from first test ferry flight at Dryden Flight Research Facility (DFRF) on Nov. 15, 1977 and goes to Jan. 23, 1986. I know that's not all of them, but it's a start. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks, I've seen those, and there is info in the Jenkins books (at least the older editions, I have not seen the latest). None seem to have the complete story though. $\endgroup$ Commented Apr 11, 2015 at 3:18

This information can be found in a document produced by the Historic American Engineering Record as part of their effort to document the Space Transportation System. The pdf document is located here (too long to post the log).
