The space shuttle Enterprise landed Friday morning at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York.
Enterprise swooped across the New York City skyline, mounted atop a 747 jumbo jet.
The shuttle took off from Virginia's Dulles International Airport, with a flight plan that included fly-bys of the Statue of Liberty and other Gotham landmarks. It is ultimately bound for it's new home at the city's Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum.
The space agency said it will put the shuttle on a barge in a few weeks and float it up the Hudson River to its final home.
Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you releid on the video to make your point. You definitely know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?
The Approach and Landing Tests were conducted with the Enterprise in 1977. While Enterprise wasn't launched via SRBs, or complete an orbital flight, it did "fly" to simulate landing after re-entry.
Flies Again? Why not print the truth. This shuttle never ever flew in space as in "space shuttle". This was a test vehicle or prototype of the follow on shuttles, although it is a symbol of our past excellence in technology.
