Wikipedia says the SCA will be sold for spare parts. Hopefully, NASA has changed its mind and will hold-on to her for now at least. Didn't know the LA Shuttle wasn't ferried yet, so yes, she's safe for now. I feared for her safety since '79 after watching the opening to the Bond film "Moonraker". The SCA is destroyed in the opening scene. I've been trying to find a model of the Shuttle atop the SCA as a sad reminder of our defunct space program but they stopped making the Revell model kit 1/144 scale. I made one back in the 70's but it get misplaced. It had the old AAL cheatline. It was cool! Only toys remain as reminders.
