We Saw the Enterprise Fly Over Our Heads!

About 45 minutes ago this morning, the space shuttle Enteprise was flown in to its new home in New York City. Tor.com managed to snap some photos! Check out a few below the cut.

Nice pics!

Everyone was running to the windows in the office here (a bit farther north in Manhattan than Tor), too.

Gorgeous photos, Irene! I'm surprised the roof party wasn't bigger, though.

Nice pictures Stubby. Anyone know when/how they plan to get the shuttle to the Intrepid?

Probably by barge... Ay?

As the US Shuttle program has now settled into the past it will be interesting to see where the NASA COTS program, Virgin Galactic, and Planetary Resources lead us over the next 5 years...
Hopefully they will lay the foundation for journies to many new worlds.
Thank you for the blog post... wish I could have been there. I look forward to going to the Intrepid some day.

Anybody else think the shuttle would have looked way cooler strapped to Stubby's back? Seriously, though, I'm jealous :/

Far Out! I am so old that I remember seeing the Enterprise rolled out. In fact I remember reading about the plans for a space shuttle a decade or so before that. Fireball XL5 was one of my favourite shows when I was 6. These lovely photos made my heart beat a little faster. Thanks for posting them.
