NASA's Orbiter Endeavour Begins Ferry Flight to Los Angeles

NASA's orbiter Endeavour and the Shuttle Carrier Aircraft took off this morning from NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida to begin the first leg of a mission to deliver the retired shuttle to Los Angeles where it will go on display.

The flight will be the last ferry flight of the space shuttle era, capping 35 years of shuttles riding atop modified 747s, counting the approach and landing tests conducted by Enterprise in 1977.
