Space Shuttle Endeavor makes it’s final journey to it’s new home.

After low level flyovers above NASA and civic landmarks across the country, El Paso and in California, it was delivered to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) on September 21, 2012. The orbiter was slowly and carefully transported through the streets of Los Angeles and Inglewood three weeks later, from October 11-14 along La Tijera, Manchester, Crenshaw, and Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevards to her final destination at the California Science Center in Exposition Park. An unmodified, San Antonio-built Toyota Tundra Crew-Max towed the orbiter across the Manchester Boulevard bridge over the I-405 freeway. The exhibit is expected to be open to the public on 30 October 2012 at the temporary Samuel Oschin Space Shuttle Endeavour Display Pavilion of the museum. A new addition to the Science Center, called the Samuel Oschin Air and Space Center, is under construction as Endeavour’s permanent home. Taking longer than expected Endeavour finally reached its permanent resting place at a Los Angeles museum on October 14.
