Space Shuttle Endeavour Viewing

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Retired space shuttle Endeavour will fly over several California landmarks Friday and that means huge crowds.NASA Spokesperson Kyle Herring said the closest low pass for the central coast will be near Vandenberg Air Force Base in the last hour of the 4 hour flight. Authorities are urging people not to stop in the middle of traffic to view or snap a picture of Endeavour strapped on top of a modified jumbo jet. Instead, law enforcement officials say people should stake out viewing spots in advance.Endeavour departed Florida early Wednesday and was expected to land at LAX Friday after a stopover in Houston. Plans call for it to make low dips over the state Capitol, San Francisco and several LA-area landmarks including the Griffith Park Observatory, City Hall, Getty Center and Disneyland.The shuttle will be housed at an airport hangar before being towed next month to the California Science Center, where it will go on display.Share your comments about this story with us on the KEY News Facebook page.
