Remarks: Coming in for one last fly by before setting up to land on runway 25 right. The delivery of the space shuttle "Endeavor" marks the last mission for this 747 with LA being the third and final city to get a shuttle to showcase to its people. This shot goes out to everyone who made today possible.
Remarks: [1600 pix] Endeavour rides on the shuttle carrier aircraft for the very last trip of its kind. Sunrise departure that will end a couple of days later at LAX.
Photo dedicated to my dad who inspired in me, an interest in both aviation and photography.
Remarks: Looking out the overhead cockpit hatch of the Shuttle Carrier Aircraft at space shuttle Endeavour shortly after the stack was pushed back from the Mate-Demate device at the Shuttle Landing Facility.
Remarks: Enterprise "OV-101" arrives in NY. This was the second pass and full stop after low fly-bys were performed around the city and the area's two other major airports, KEWR and KLGA. Landing RWY 31L for the first and last time.
Remarks: BOVIC15 heavy with Enterprise (OV-101) gracefully passes my window on the 64th floor of 30 Rock in Manhattan. Heading south along the Hudson River on her way to continue her victory lap around NYC. What a morning!
