Landed in Houston today. Will make flyovers Friday over S.F., Sacramento, etc., before landing in L.A. to find out which L.A. Landmarks it will fly over on Friday & when. (L.A. drivers warned not to stop or pull over or get distracted & take eyes off road while shuttle makes its low flyover. Good luck with that one.)

Troy - There are no flights filed today between KTTS and KEFD. Therefore, the flight was again delayed by weather or has been exempted from flight tracking.

I was playing golf in Wilcox, AZ a while back and I heard what I thought was just a loud jet airliner passing by and none of us bothered to turn around to look at it. Found out later it was the Shuttle-747 combo making it's way back to Florida from Edwards AFB. Still kicking myself about that.
Watched the flyover at Patrick AFB, Florida this AM, a sight to remember.
Unable to locate on Flight Aware tracking this morning. San Francisco and Sacramento fly over's also scheduled .. Friday morning at KNUQ

I watch the first shuttle landing at Edwards AFB in 1983 or may be 1984, a sight that I will never forget. This was more memorable than the first. At last one came home....

Could have been part of a large air show that begins on Saturday in the Daytona area. What's the rush to get this thing to the west coast? A great flyaway could have been ... drawing record crowds ... just sayin'.

Drove 90 miles from Chico to Sacramento to see the fly-over this morning at about 0945. Was an awesome sight to behold. Once in a lifetime. So glad we made the trip.

Weather pushes space shuttle Endeavour's L.A. arrival to Friday

Space shuttle Endeavour will arrive in Los Angeles a day later than originally intended after the threat of thunderstorms again delayed the start of the retired orbiter's cross-country trip from Florida.

The shuttle is now expected to reach Los Angeles International Airport on Friday, NASA announced.

Endeavour was supposed to leave NASA's Kennedy Space Center for Houston early Monday, the first leg of its days-long trek across the southern United States that includes 1,500-foot flyovers of several NASA facilities.

Space shuttle to fly Las Cruces skies in farewell trip

LAS CRUCES — It's one last chance to say good-bye.

Later this month, the Space Shuttle Endeavour will sail over White Sands Missile Range, NASA facilities on the East Mesa and the city of Las Cruces on its farewell voyage across America.

NASA officials announced this week the shuttle will make a special pass over the Las Cruces area — thanks to its decades-long involvement with the U.S. space shuttle program and a "fortuitous" location along the shuttle's flight path to California. Endeavour be retired there.
