Fans in the LA area — keep an eye out for the passing of the shuttle Endeavour on Friday morning (September 21.) Around 10:30 a.m. it will be carried over several local landmarks, including the Getty Center, the Griffith Observatory, Malibu and Disneyland.
It will also fly over its new permanent home at the California Science Center in Exposition Park before landing at LAX around 11 a.m.
Next month, on October 12 and 13, Endeavor will be hauled from the United Airlines hangar via surface streets to the science center.
Nearly 400 trees have been cut down along the route so the shuttle will have clearance. However, they will be replaced by receive the state minimum requirement of two replanted trees for every one removed, and other economic incentives have been promised to win over the affected neighborhoods.
