At least they told people before this one....remember the last flybys of the Statue of Liberty for publicity photos? lol... This time, everyone knew it was coming to get photos. Kudos to that change in planning! I wish I were there to have gotten a photo. My parents took me to see one of the first landings of a U.S. Shuttle at Edwards AFB when I was a kid. It's one of those memories I'll go into the next life cherishing. I hope many young kids got to see this and feel similarly for having the chance to view history. Nice pics!

Very cool pics , but for a second I thought you meant the actual Space ship Enterprise from Star Trek.

If only that were true....

They are cool pictures, but I can't help but feel sad.

It's like a Bugatti being carried by a dusty, rotting VW beetle. Such a craft should be soaring high in the sky, not being carried like a -expletive-.

Sorry, rant off.

We have 4 Space Shuttle "orbiters" left:
Enterprise (never went orbital);
Atlantis;
Discovery;
Endeavor.

There should be one on the left coast landing area;
one in Texas (Houston / Mission Control);
one in Florida (Cape Canaveral launch);
one just outside D.C. where the lawmakers can't touch it.

Why are there two near NYC?
