Endeavour over Los Angeles

Endeavour looks incredible flying over Los Angeles en route to LAX. It was the last flight for this space shuttle, as it completed its tour of California skies and landed, atop NASA‘s Shuttle Carrier Aircraft (SCA), a modified 747 jetliner, for the last time.   Image credit: Stephen Confer.    http://astroimages.photoshelter.com/

Now retired, the space shuttles are all museum pieces, with the above shuttle scheduled to be towed at California Science Center.
