About: Complete this challenging jigsaw and see the space shuttle Discovery secured to a crawler transporter, slowly moving away from the launch pad at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. In 1984, Discovery became the third operational orbiter following Columbia and Challenger, and made its final touchdown at Kennedy Space Center on March 9, 2011 at 10:57:17 CST, having spent a cumulative total of one full year (365 days) in space. Discovery has performed both research and International Space Station (ISS) assembly missions. Discovery also flew the Hubble Space Telescope into orbit. Image Credits: NASA

Plane Taking Off
In this new jigsaw puzzle we're in the airport parking lot waiting for our plane to take off.
This kind of plane was used in World War I. It was built by Nieuport, later Nieuport-Delage, was a French aeroplane company that primarily built racing aircraft before World War I and fighter aircraft during World War I. The aircraft featured in this puzzle is a replica of the Nieuport 11, nicknamed the Bebe. The Nieuport 11 reached the French front in January 1916, and 90 were in service within the month. During the course of the Battle of Verdun in February 1916, the Nieuport 11 re-established French air superiority, forcing a radical change in German tactics.
The sun was about to set just as this small plane was getting ready to take off. Click start and put the plane and the beautiful sunset landscape it's in back together as fast as you can an get a place on our leader board.
The Gloster Gladiator (or Gloster SS.37) was a British-built biplane fighter. It was used by the Royal Air Force (RAF) and the Royal Navy (as the Sea Gladiator variant) and was exported to a number of other air forces during the late 1930s. It was the RAF's last biplane fighter aircraft and was rendered obsolete by newer monoplane designs even as it was being introduced. Though often pitted against more formidable foes during the early days of the Second World War, it acquitted itself reasonably

Another great aircraft themed jigsaw is here. This puzzle features the McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Hornet. The McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing) F/A-18 Hornet is a twin-engine supersonic, all-weather carrier-capable multirole fighter jet, designed to dogfight and attack ground targets (F/A for Fighter/Attack). Designed by McDonnell Douglas and Northrop, the F/A-18 was derived from the latter's YF-17 in the 1970s for use by the United States Navy and Marine Corps.
The North American Aviation P-51 Mustang was an American long-range, single-seat fighter and fighter-bomber used during World War II, the Korean War and in several other conflicts. During World War II Mustang pilots claimed 4,950 enemy aircraft shot down, second only to the Grumman F6F Hellcat among Allied aircraft.
Space Shuttle Launch
Today's new puzzle features the space shuttle taking off for one of it's last missions in outer space. The Space Shuttle was a crewed, partially reusable low Earth orbital spacecraft operated by the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). The first of four orbital test flights occurred in 1981, leading to operational flights beginning in 1982. It was used on a total of 135 missions from 1981 to 2011, launched from the Kennedy Space Center (KSC) in Florida. he first orbiter, Enterprise, was built purely for Approach and Landing Tests and had no capability to fly into orbit. Four fully operational orbiters were initially built: Columbia, Challenger, Discovery, and Atlantis. Of these, Challenger and Columbia were lost in mission accidents in 1986 and 2003 respectively, in which a total of fourteen astronauts were killed. A fifth operational orbiter, Endeavour, was built in 1991 to replace Challenger. The Space Shuttle was retired from service upon the conclusion of Atlantis' final flight on July 21, 2011.
Put this jigsaw back together and see the legendary Sopwith Camel. The Sopwith Camel was a British First World War single-seat biplane fighter introduced on the Western Front in 1917. Manufactured by Sopwith Aviation Company, it had a short-coupled fuselage, heavy, powerful rotary engine, and concentrated fire from twin synchronized machine guns. Though difficult to handle, to an experienced pilot it provided unmatched maneuverability. A superlative fighter, the Camel was credited with shooting down 1,294 enemy aircraft, more than any other Allied fighter of the war.
Boeing C-17 Globemaster
This new puzzle features a Boeing C-17 Globemaster on the airport runway. The C-17 is 53 m long and has a wingspan of about 52 m. The C-17 is powered by four Pratt & Whitney F117-PW-100 turbofan engines, which are based on the commercial Pratt and Whitney PW2040 used on the Boeing 757. Each engine is rated at 180 kN of thrust. The aircraft requires a crew of three for cargo operations. Cargo is loaded through a large aft ramp. Maximum payload of the C-17 is 77,500 kg, and its Maximum Takeoff Weight is 265,350 kg.
Air Force One over Mt. Rushmore
This online puzzle features the Air Force One flying over Mt. Rushmore. Air Force One is the official air traffic control call sign of a United States Air Force aircraft carrying the President of the United States. The "Air Force One" call sign was created after a 1953 incident during which a flight carrying President Dwight D. Eisenhower entered the same airspace as a commercial airline flight using the same call sign. Several aircraft have been used as Air Force One since the creation of the presidential fleet, including two Boeing 707s introduced in the 1960s and 1970s, respectively; since 1990, the presidential fleet has consisted of two Boeing VC-25As – specifically configured, highly customized Boeing 747-200B series aircraft.
