Nope...the original ENT was never designed to be aerodynamic. Can't fly or maneuver within an atmosphere.
Says who?

The saucer was always said to be separable, which is why they did it in the pilot of TNG, but even THAT only had limited maneuverability within an atmosphere (see the big-ass wreck in Generations).
Generations was an emergency landing, and I'd say it was a very successful one, what with no one dying. Plus Troi was at the helm. I'm sure the saucer could do loopdy-loops in the atmosphere on a good day.
