The USS Intrepid Air/Space Museum (NYC) recently won the bid to acquire the Enterprise for permanent display at the carrier museum on NYC’s West Side. So last week, NASA’s Shuttle Carrier Aircraft, a 747, brought the space shuttle to New York City.
The NASA/Intrepid folks wanted to historically welcome the Enterprise to NYC, so to promote the Enterprise’s arrival, they had it flown up the Hudson River at a relatively low altitude – mounted atop the 747 – while passing her future home, the Intrepid Museum.
A friend just shared these incredible pictures with us & we wanted to share them with you (absolutely no Photoshop/editing was done on either). If you’ve ever witnessed one of these flyovers, let us know all about it and for more incredible information on all things NASA, be sure to check out their comprehensive site.
