Space Shuttle Program Transition and Retirement managers met Sunday afternoon (April 22) to again evaluate the weather forecast for space shuttle Enterprise's Ferry Flight to New York City's John F. Kennedy International Airport. The group, in conjunction with Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum officials, deferred setting a date for the ferry flight until Monday.
Managers will convene at 1 p.m. EDT for the OV-101 Ferry Flight Readiness Review and again will evaluate the weather and system readiness to support the ferry flight. They are expected to formally set the date at the conclusion of the meeting.
The latest forecast indicates a low pressure system on the east coast will deliver low clouds and rain in both the Washington, D.C. and New York areas, precluding the flight of NASA's prototype shuttle until Wednesday at the earliest.
