Space shuttle Endeavour to embark on a California flyover
LOS ANGELES (MCT) — The space shuttle Endeavour circled Earth 4,671 times in its 25 missions to space. But its final loop on Friday will present something somewhat alien to the spacecraft: the Los Angeles commuter.
Perched atop a modified Boeing 747, the orbiter will circle Southern California on Friday morning before landing at Los Angeles International Airport midday. The shuttle will fly 1,500 feet over several area landmarks, including the Getty Center, Griffith Observatory and Universal Studios. Disneyland, the Queen Mary and Long Beach Aquarium are also on the list, along with the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in La Canada Flintridge and the California Science Center in Exposition Park — the orbiter’s permanent home.
