    Gordon, as I'm sure many other people will point out, the
    vehicle that flew 25 flights within the atmosphere, as an aircraft,
    was not  a spaceworthy Buran but
    merely an atmospheric test vehicle. The spacecraft Buran vehicle
    was only launched once, on an Energiya rocket, into orbit, and 
    did not carry a crew, so the earlier poster is quite correct
    (and in general I guess when we talk about Discovery's number of
    flights, we're not counting cross-country trips on the back of
    the 747...)
