A nice way to enhance an otherwise nondescript part of the cities and make for a refreshign change. Plot hooks #2 & 3 would fit perfectly into a WFrp campaign, and #1 can make for a nice (temporary?) animal companion for a rogue or other street dweller.

One thing to bear in mind however is a traditional modern space shuttle is essentially a flying brick upon atmosphere reentry and doesn't so much "glide" as "fall out fo the sky under minimal pilot control" so keeping one in the air for hours would prove rather difficult without altering the main design a fair bit. (To be more reminiscent of the WWII style glider, i.e something with a large wing span and surface area) Additionally one could also attach solar panels and a cheap electric driven prop to the rear (that can be remotely detached if desired) to give it added flight time and distance.
It seem GC ate my previous commentary, so let me try this again:
An exhaustive amount of information and very in depth plot that is quite memorable; I particularly like the link backs in the intro to other subs, it makes for a convenient reference for the reader.
However I do find the amount of depth here to be a little rigid and difficult to easily work into an already established campaign setting without it feeling like it was shoehorned in somewhat.
Adding in an additional section with plot hooks and adventure concepts, as well as some suggestions on how to include this faith/legend into an existing fantasy world would complete the piece for me, and give it that last bit of "ready to use" feeling it seems to lack for me.
An impressive entry, very complete and a useful addition to fantasy worlds history (especially for oriental games)
It's hard to say anything that hasn't already been echoed by others, except that this is one of my favorite subs, and I really wish I'd found it earlier :)
A fun sub, and creative challenge. One could adapt this to a high tech setting as well with little difficulty. (any setting with holo-deck style technology or nano machine fabricators could replicate the magical effect easily enough.
On a side note the second image link isn't working either. Perhaps try http://photobucket.com
