Up in the Sky! The Enterprise is Overhead!

The Space Shuttle will be flying overhead on its way to display at the Intrepid Museum in New York harbor.


The Space Shuttle Enterprise, piggybacked onto NASA's 747 shuttle carrier, is due to be flying over the New York area - and itself - on its way to JFK Airport between now and 11:30 am. The space shuttle is going to be showcased at the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum.

During the weeks following the arrival, Enterprise will be "demated" from the 747 and placed on a barge that will be moved by tugboat up the Hudson River to the Intrepid museum in June.

The shuttle will be lifted by crane and placed on the flight deck of the Intrepid, where it will be on exhibit to the public starting this summer in a temporary climate-controlled pavilion, NASA said in a statement.

The Intrepid continues to work on a permanent exhibit facility to showcase Enterprise that will enhance the museum's space-related exhibits and education curriculum.
