  • News Space Shuttle to fly over Disneyland

    The news was just released that the Space Shuttle Endeavor atop it's 747 Jet will fly over Disneyland at 10"30am this Friday. It will be a very low fly over and is accompanied by two NASA T-38 jets and preceded by a 727 scout/weather jet. If you are there have your cameras ready as this will be very low, below flight levels. I think I am going to go down Friday to see it. I saw the very first shuttle land at Edwards Air Force Base in Lancaster after it's first flight. Awe Inspiring and this should be the same. The Last Shuttle making it's last flight, ever.

            I wonder if it will be flying over Irvine that morning as I have to work.

              Here is the official release from Disneyland News:

              During the final leg of its ferry flight from Florida to Los Angeles, Space Shuttle Endeavor will make a low-level pass over Disneyland, among other locations. The Space Shuttle will be ferried on the back of a modified 747 aircraft, just as NASA has done for the duration of the Space Shuttle program.

              Other low level flight locations in Los Angeles will include the Getty Center, the Griffith Observatory, Malibu, and Disneyland.
              The pass over Disneyland is scheduled to happen sometime after 10:30 a.m. on Friday
              Endeavor will become part of a permanent exhibit at the California Science Center in Los Angeles later this year.

              The altitude over the areas will be between 2K and 3K feet. The Shuttle has priority clearance over the entire So Cal area until it lands at LAX.

                Although I'm sure there will be some good ones, it would be better if they could announce good set-up locations so as to get a shot of the shuttle with a great background and/or foreground (like Space Mountain, for example). Unfortunately that's the same information some nut with a Stinger would find helpful ...

                  Also interesting will be seeing a 727 fly again. I haven't seen one of those in while. Is it really going to be a 727?

                  In any case, I hope we see lots of pictures and videos this Friday!

                    I love how they just fly the shuttles around so much now that they will be on permanent display. They don't have to worry about damaging the tiles now.

                        This is a really cool nod ( assuming this is being intentionally flown by Disneyland ) to Walt and his contribution to the space effort back in the 50's. A lot of people don't know Walt's direct contribution by coming up with short films that imagined space travel, ultimately gaining public favor in there even being a space program, otherwise it may have ended before it began. Making this last flight over Disneyland is something I see as "thank you" to him.

                          I can't wait! I wonder if the area will be really crowded.
