Mir 19 Mission Commander Anatoly Y. Solovyev gets to ride shotgun behind STS-71 Mission Commander Robert "Hoot" Gibson for the trip from Johnson Space Center, Houston, to KSC's Shuttle Landing Facility. All seven STS-71 crew members zoomed into KSC in the T-38 aircraft traditionally flown by the astronaut corps. Earlier in the day, the countdown clock began ticking toward Friday's scheduled liftoff of the Space Shuttle Atlantis at 5:08 p.m. EDT, June 23. During the STS-71 mission, Solovyev and fellow Mir 19 crew member Nikolai M. Budarin will transfer from Atlantis to Mir and remain there. (Photo Release Date: 6/20/95 )
