Space Shuttle Endeavour over State Capital – Click for more images

The Space Shuttle Endeavour is headed for mothballs as it makes its way to its final destination in Los Angeles, where it will be on display at the California Science Center in Los Angeles.

As Endeavour has traveled across country it has been flown at lower altitudes over various cities, including Sacramento, as it headed to the San Francisco Bay Area and then on to Los Angeles.

The space shuttle Endeavour lifted off for the last time at 8:17 a.m. PT on Friday, leaving Edwards Air Force Base, California, atop a modified jumbo jet for a farewell tour through the state of California. It made two passes over the state capital at an altitude of approximately 1,500 feet at around 220 miles per hour. While 220 m.p.h. is relatively slow for a 747, on the ground each pass lasted only 10 to 20 seconds.
