Sharing this, as I have big, glorious flying machines on the brain (gazing lovingly at a Boeing 777-200 as I write this post from the airport; going overseas for a couple of weeks.) Endeavour starts her journey toward sunny California today – here she is, saddled up and ready to ride!
Space shuttle Endeavour is seen atop NASA’s Shuttle Carrier Aircraft, or SCA, at the Shuttle Landing Facility at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center on Monday, Sept. 17, 2012 in Cape Canaveral, Fla. The SCA, a modified 747 jetliner, will fly Endeavour to Los Angeles where it will be placed on public display at the California Science Center. This is the final ferry flight scheduled in the Space Shuttle Program era. Photo Credit: (NASA/Bill Ingalls)
