Shuttle Enterprise Arrives in NYC

New York City residents and workers took a moment Friday morning to watch the space shuttle Enterprise make a dramatic flight along the Hudson River before arriving at John F. Kennedy airport. Perched atop a Boeing 747 jet, the retired Enterprise flew from Washington D.C. into the New York region, swooping in at a low altitude and passing city monuments like the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, and the World Trade Center. The shuttle will remain at JFK for several weeks until it will be removed from the jet and carried on a barge to its final destination at New York’s Intrepid Sea, Air, and Space Museum.
