Enterprise lands in New York for museum display
[i]Space shuttle Enterprise, the prototype for NASA's orbiter fleet, is now a New Yorker.
The original test space shuttle, Enterprise flew into the Big Apple on Friday (April 27) atop a modified Boeing 747 jumbo jet. The air- and spacecraft duo touched down at New York's John F. Kennedy (JFK) International Airport at 11:22 a.m. EDT (1522 GMT) following a photogenic flyover of some of the metropolitan area's most famous sights, including the Statue of Liberty and the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum, which Enterprise will soon call home.
"Today is a great day for New York," said Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY), who was on hand at JFK to witness the orbiter touch down. "Welcome, Enterprise — you're going to love it in New York, and we're glad to have you."[/i]
