Emotions were running wild when, after traveling almost 125 million miles in space, with 25 completed missions, our now retired shuttle ‘Endeavour’ touched down at LAX for the very last time the last week of September. Endeavour landed at LAX just before 1 p.m. on top of the massive Boeing 747 Shuttle Carrier Aircraft.
Before touching down at LAX, thousands of people gathered around Southern California to witness Endeavour as it flew atop the 747 at low altitude over California’s most famous places and landmarks. On October 12th, Endeavor will be towed up to the California Science Center, its final home. The shuttle is expected to go on public display on Oct. 30th.
