Enterprise ferried to New York
Posted: Sat, Apr 28, 2012, 8:10 AM ET (1210 GMT)
Enterprise and 747 over New York City (NASA) NASA flew the space shuttle Enterprise from Washington, DC, to New York on Friday, where it will be displayed at a museum there starting later this year. The 747 carrying Enterprise took off from Dulles International Airport outside Washington at 9:39 am EDT (1339 GMT) and landed at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York at 11:22 am EDT (1522 GMT). Once arriving in the New York area, the 747 and Enterprise made an aerial tour of the city, allowing people to view the orbiter as it flew up along the Hudson River and over various city landmarks. Enterprise, a test orbiter that made several glide flights but never flew in space, is being transferred from the Smithsonian's Udvar-Hazy Center to the Intrepid Sea-Air-Space Museum on the Hudson in Manhattan. Enterprise will be moved from the airport to the museum by means of two barges in June.
