Jeebus. How do I share a FB photo on here. Secondly, what happened to all my photos? Did we lose them on the new board switch?

I'd have to create a photobucket account. I didn't want it to be a project. Maybe some of my FB friends from here can spread it around or figure it out.

The new board is just not user friendly.

Space Shuttle Enterprise Lands in NYC

The shuttle flew past the Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty and World Trade Center on its way to JFK

Friday, Apr 27, 2012 | Updated 12:24 PM EDT

The space shuttle Enterprise, riding atop a modified jumbo jet, glided past the Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty and World Trade Center on a flight over New York City before landing at Kennedy Airport Friday.
If you saw the shuttle today, Tweet your photos, send them to tips@nbcnewyork.com or post them to Instagram using #NBC4NY. Check out a gallery of photos here.
The shuttle had been scheduled to arrive earlier in the week but NASA pushed it back because of bad weather.

The shuttle prototype was housed at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington but will soon be making its home at the Intrepid, where it will be "the largest and most significant space artifact in the entire Northeast," said Susan Marenoff-Zausner, Intrepid's president.
A ceremony celebrated the shuttle's arrival at JFK, where it will remain for a few weeks until it is taken off the 747 jet it rode to New York.
After that, Marenoff-Zausner said, it will be put on a barge in early June and brought up the Hudson River to the Intrepid, where it will be put on the flight deck and a pavilion over it will be completed. The museum anticipates opening the shuttle exhibit to the public in mid-July.
"When somebody comes to visit, they will not only see the shuttle itself, but will have an engaging and interactive experience inside the pavilion," she said.
Enterprise comes to New York as part of NASA's process of wrapping up the shuttle program, which ended last summer. At the Smithsonian, its place has been taken by the shuttle Discovery. Shuttle Endeavor is going to Los Angeles and shuttle Atlantis is staying at Florida's Kennedy Space Center.
Enterprise has never been used in an actual space mission, but was a full-scale test vehicle used for flights in the atmosphere and experiments on the ground.
That doesn't make Intrepid any less excited about having it, Marenoff-Zausner said.
"This is an institution in American history," she said, adding, "This tested so many different things that without it, travel into space would never have happened."
She is confident the public will feel the same way and anticipates interest in the shuttle will increase the number of annual visitors by about 30 percent, to 1.3 million over the course of a year.
The public's interest is what drove the Intrepid to find a way to display it even though a permanent display location still has to be found, Marenoff-Zausner said.
The initial plan was to leave it at the airport for a couple of years until its permanent home was set, she said, but "we want the public to be able to experience this immediately."
In order to do that, Intrepid had to do some shuffling around of its collection. Last week, three aircraft were taken off the flight deck and sent to the Empire State Aerosciences Museum in Glenville, N.Y.

He sure does. Where is it landing in NYC?


Today they're having it piggieback a huge plane and doing flyovers of the city adn the Statue of Liberty.
Then it will land at JFK but eventually it'll be housed at the Intrepid museum.

Just in case anyone is wondering, that's the 32nd floor view of the NY Times building facing Jersey (western view).

For those asking, the shuttle that was flown to NY today will rest in hanger at JFK until such time as the Intrepid in NYC is ready to display her on its deck. I believe that should be sometime in like June.

It was either Discovery or Atlantis that was taken to Washington to be displayed in the air and space annex. Whichever one isn't in DC will remain down in FLA to be displayed at Cape Canaveral.

We saw the construction site for the shuttle display @ Kennedy Space Center when we were there a few weeks ago. Its gonna be amazing! Hoping to go back to FL to see it when its completed. We also saw the NY-bound shuttle while we were there, but it was just kinda parked by one of the launch viewing sites, not really on display or anything. It was waiting to be prepped for the flight up to NY.
