Fly Next to Space Shuttle Endeavour as It Criss-Crosses LA

New, 18 comments

Did you think it was pretty cool to watch the space shuttle Endeavour fly (piggyback on a 747) over LA landmarks on its way into LAX? Well, prepare to have your mind blown, then: here is NASA's video shot from one of the transport's F18 chase planes. You can even, as the tipster who sent this in points out, hear cockpit chatter between the pilot, the cameraperson, and the control tower. The really juicy action starts around 2:35. Endeavour is camping out at LAX for a bit, but will start making its way, very slowly, to its new home at the California Science Center beginning Friday night. It's going to be tough to catch that trip, but we'll have some tips on watching later this week.
