The Space Shuttle Endeavor’s Ferryflight

The decommissioned Space Shuttle  Endeavour made  the last leg of her tour across the United States in the San Francisco Bay area. I headed north to Mountain View, CA to catch a glimpse of her.
After leaving San Francisco she headed south to Moffet Field.

I first spotted her as she was flying over the big hanger at Moffet Field.

There were quite a few folks here with me, but not the 1000’s of people who were over at Moffet Field.

The traffic on the freeway beside this building crawled and stalled. The Highway Patrol came by with a bull-horn warning people on the freeway not to pull over and to

keep moving or face a fine and ticket. The little dirt lots around this building filled up with spectators.

It was really neat to see her fly by. The crowd cheered! I got goosebumps. What a wonderful history she’s had, and the shuttle program has been a remarkable accomplishment in the history of our Space Program. It is sad to see it end. I hope the Space Program continues on its journey with new adventures and exciting discoveries in the future.
