The Space Shuttle atmospheric glide test prototype Enterpise had a prang on its last leg of its journey from the Smithsonian’s Udvar-Hazy exhibition near Dulles Airport in Washington DC to its new home at the Intrepid Air and Space Museum in New York City. On its barge trip, Enterprise’s wingtip struck the side of a bridge as the barge drifted into it. Thankfully, the damage is repairable. Courtesy: NASA
