Space Shuttle Endeavour's Final Flight
The pilots of the 747 had no real flight plan to adhere to and as long as they kept in touch with air traffic controllers they could do whatever they wanted, and they did, much to the delight of people all over the southland, including Disneyland where tourists from all over the world got a once in a lifetime sight.
Here are some shots I took as we were startled as Endeavour flew right over our heads. We had no idea it would be so close, we were busy looking much north and had to do a quick one eighty as the roar came overhead. Click on the pictures to make them larger. Yes, those are fighter jets escorting the shuttle.
