The space shuttle Endeavour began its final aerial show Wednesday, thrilling spectators across the southern United States.
After a two-day delay because of weather conditions, Endeavour began its cross-country flight Wednesday from Kennedy Space Center in Florida to Los Angeles, where the now-retired spacecraft will be put on display.
NASA had postponed Endeavour's piggyback trek atop a modified 747 airliner to its retirement home after inclement weather Monday and a poor forecast Tuesday.
The journey is divided into three legs that could be described as scenic routes to showcase the shuttle to the public. It will take three days to complete.
Endeavour, along with Discovery, Enterprise and Atlantis, became museum pieces after NASA ended its 30-year shuttle program on July 21, 2011.FULL STORY
