It wouldn't be a trip to Southern California without a visit to Disneyland.
The Anaheim park is one of several Los Angeles-area landmarks that space shuttle Endeavour will fly over before landing Friday morning at Los Angeles International Airport, according to NASA. Also on deck: the Getty Center, Griffith Observatory and the California Science Center, the retired orbiter's new permanent home.
The Los Angeles flyover will mark the end of Endeavour's farewell aerial tour which is slated to begin at dawn Wednesday when it departs Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Flown atop a modified Boeing 747, the shuttle will dip low over several NASA sites in the southern United States before landing in Houston, where it will spend Wednesday night.
The orbiter is set to reach Edwards Air Force Base on Thursday afternoon, where it will refuel for its California route. The shuttle will depart at 7:15 a.m. Friday, passing low over Palmdale, Lancaster, Rosamond and Mojave before heading north to Sacramento. After flying over the Capitol, the shuttle will head to San Francisco before continuing its journey to L.A.
