I think you should sneak Valkyrie into the cargo hold...take a couple of laps around the space station. You would certainly quallify for a high altitude rating and probably post better than Van's numbers.

Seriously..congratulations. I am in awe with our space program.

This is related to nothing and just out of sheer curioscity... would they let you take a shot of your plane next to the shuttle? On the ground of course.

Seems like it would make for the ultimate virutal hangar or trading card posting.
