I'm not sure that's right you know (and I hate to argue with you EG but I don't see where it states that at all). As a kid we went down to Stanstead Airport and watched it come in piggyback on a jumbo jet and I swear it landed. Because we were standing on a bridge over the motorway and it went out of sight down onto the ground. This is my recollection anyway. There were a lot of people came to see it!This Gloucestershire Live article clearly states the 20 May 1983 visit was the only time Enterprise (or any shuttle) visited RAF Fairford or anywhere else in the UK (on-ground).
