The Spaceshuttle Endeavor flies over Los Angeles with pictures!

On Friday September 21, a little before noon, the Space Shuttle Endeavor (on top of the its 747) flew over where I (Arnold Woodworth) work.

Here are a few of the pictures I took.

Note the two fighter escorts.  They are F-18 jets.

The first two pictures were taken just after they cleared the hill to the west.

The Griffith Observatory is on that hill, and I'm sure the people there got a great view.

The next two pictures were taken when they flew right over me.

Any aviation buffs might notice that the "slats" on the front of the wings of the 747 are deployed so that the 747 can fly slower and give people on the ground more time to view the Space Shuttle Endeavor as if flies past.





I should mention that NASA loves its Macintoshes!
