Crowd watches flyover

The Space Shuttle Endeavour, riding piggyback on a 747, flew low over Stennis Space Center, Miss., today just before 8:30 a.m. CDT on its final ferry flight. More than 1,000 center employees and visitors were outside to watch. Endeavour left Florida early this morning.

Endeavour is heading for Los Angeles where it will spend its retirement years. (Source: Times-Picayune, 09/19/12)
