Final Flight

September 23, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

Not art, but worthy of sharing, I think.

The Bay Area was one of the lucky places on the route of the final flight of Space Shuttle Endeavour – piggy backed on a a specially modified 747 – as it made it’s way from Edwards Air Force base to a museum in Los Angeles, where it will reside permanently. On the way it passed low over the Golden Gate bridge and then headed down to NASA’s Ames research center at Moffat Field where many of the wind tunnel work in its design was done.

This historic journey was the last time the shuttle will ever be in the air,  so I was one of many waiting for the shuttle and it’s fighter escort to pass overhead. Naturally I had my camera ready!

Enjoy!
