Enterprise Space Shuttle flying over the Hudson River Today

Taken from my window 12 miles west of NYC in Montclair, NJ

 

On December 12, 2011, ownership of the Enterprise was officially transferred to the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in New York City.[16][17] [18] In preparation for the anticipated relocation, engineers evaluated the vehicle in early 2010 and determined that it was safe to fly on the Shuttle Carrier Aircraft once again.[19] At approximately 9:40 AM Eastern Daylight Time on April 27, Enterprise took off from Dulles International Airport en-route to a fly-by over the Hudson River, New York's JFK International Airport, the Statue of Liberty, the George Washington and Verrazano-Narrows Bridges, and several other landmarks in the city; in an approximately 45-minute "final tour". On April 27, 2012, 11:23 AM Eastern Daylight Time Enterprise touched down at JFK International Airport. From there it will be moved by barge to the Intrepid Museum.[
