Diagram of the Space Shuttle Carrier

The Space shuttle bearer or the transporter flies return flights for the most part leave at day break or right away thereafter. Flying in the ballpark of 50 miles in front of it could be a pathfinder plane checking for climate unsettling influences and rerouteing the shuttle transporter if essential. In the ballpark of 30 group parts fly with the pathfinder and examine the shuttle for harm at every stop in it is flight. The part called Tailcone supports smoother wind stream and hoses the tail vibrations on the Space Jet Carrier.
