The Space Shuttle prototype Enterprise has arrived in New York. It flew atop a 747 over Manhattan on its way to JFK airport. The Enterprise will then be on permanent display at New York's Intrepid Sea, Air and Space museum this summer.
Thousands of New Yorkers got a pretty good view of the Space Shuttle Enterprise as it flew over mid-town. I was in Brooklyn when I took these shots.
As the Space Shuttle Enterprise arrived in New York, a smaller aircraft (lower right) was captured in my shot. ,
Both the Space Shuttle Enterprise and the 747 it flew atop are huge aircraft and their size made it easy for New Yorkers to get a good look at latest tourist attraction.
