Prototype space shuttle Enterprise bound for NYC reunited with NASA aircraft
[i]NASA's original prototype space shuttle, Enterprise, was reunited Friday (April 20) with the jumbo jet that first ferried it for a series of important test flights in the late 1970s.
The test orbiter was mounted atop NASA's Shuttle Carrier Aircraft, a modified Boeing 747, for its flight next week to New York's John F. Kennedy (JFK) International Airport. Weather permitting, Enterprise is scheduled to depart on Monday morning (April 23) to be delivered for display by the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum later this summer.[/i]
