Dec 8, 2008- STS-126 landing, day 6

After some initial problems, the tailcone was finally attached late last night. I was busy working with two other guys installing ferry locks– heavy metal brackets that hold the elevon actuators in the null position (level) during the ferry flight. Forgot to bring my camera– missed some great shots, but hopefully I can get some from another person that was out there.
