For more than 30 years Crew Compartment Trainer One was used to teach astronauts how to fly orbiters and operate equipment in space. Astronaut Greg Johnson was on hand Wednesday as CCT-1 arrived on the NASA Super Guppy aircraft. Johnson says he spent almost more time in the trainer than in actual space.</p> Thu, 23 Aug 2012 03:11:23 +0000 Tana Weingartner 2931 at http://wmub.org Space shuttle training simulator lands in Dayton
