SEATTLE  -- A huge plane known as the Super Guppy is making its third and final delivery of the Space Shuttle trainer that will go on display at the Museum of Flight.

The plane landed Thursday morning. From there, it's a short move for the trainer the nearby museum where the trainer display will open in October. Two other sections were delivered in previous Super Guppy flights.

The public will be able to walk through the full-scale mock-up of a Space Shuttle, which was used to train NASA astronauts.

The Museum of Flight will hold a drawing for the public to take a special tour of the Shuttle Trainer Crew Compartment. That drawing will take place at 12:30 p.m.

The museum opens at 9:30 a.m.
