To do in NYC Friday: see Space Shuttle Enterprise fly overhead

NASA just announced that on Friday, April 27, space shuttle Enterprise will be "piggybacked" on a 747 Shuttle Carrier Aircraft from Washington Dulles International Airport to New York's JFK.

The duo "will fly at a relatively low altitude over various parts of the New York City metropolitan area," and are expected to "fly near a variety of landmarks, including the Statue of Liberty and Intrepid."

The FAA is coordinating the flight, which is scheduled to occur between 9:30 and 11:30 a.m. EDT. More details here. (photo: NASA/Renee Bouchard)


  1.  You know, I remember being disappointed that Enterprise was not a fully functional space craft that was going to actually fly into orbit. But now that the rest of them are grounded, she’s the most intact of the fleet left.

  2. New York gets a shuttle.  Houston doesn’t.  There is no adequate explanation for that.
