The Big Apple will have to wait a few more days for its space shuttle to arrive.
The retiring space shuttle Enterprise was supposed to arrive Wednesday, but bad weather delayed the plans for a dramatic New York City flyover. (The flyover was originally supposed to happen Monday, but an unfavorable forecast scuttled those plans, too.)
NASA said Wednesday that the rendezvous could now take place Friday -- Mother Nature permitting.
The highly anticipated flyover comes as the space shuttle heads into retirement at the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum this summer in New York City. But the fun part is getting the Enterprise from its current parking spot at Dulles International Airport in Washington, D.C., to John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York.
That will involve the ultimate piggy-back ride, courtesy a modified 747. The flyover is sure to be an eye-popping spectacle, with the legendary aircraft expected to fly near a variety of landmarks, including the Statue of Liberty.
