STS-69 Mission Commander David M. Walker guides the orbiter Endeavour to an end-of-mission landing on Runway 33 of KSC's Shuttle Landing Facility. Main gear touchdown at 7:37:56 a.m. EDT marked the 25th end-of-mission landing at Kennedy. The fifth Space Shuttle flight of 1995 was a multifaceted one. For the first time, two spacecraft -- the Wake Shield Facility-2 and the Spartan-201-3 -- were deployed and later retrieved on the same flight. An extravehicular activity, or spacewalk, was conducted and the crew oversaw a variety of experiments located in both the orbiter payload bay and middeck. Besides Walker, the crew included Pilot Kenneth D. Cockrell; Payload Commander James S. Voss; and Mission Specialists Michael L. Gernhardt and James H. Newman. (Photo Release Date: 09/18/95 )
