aha! KABC Live

(with pauses for commercials unfortunately)

They're behind schedule right now.

Another live stream, NBC LA:

About hour and a half behind schedule but close to 9-hour stop point.

Not surprised they're going slower than planned.  Several things going on that are likely only ever going to be done once.

I know, a reporter did admit it was a bit "surreal".

But it's good to see, as I'm switching thru the local stations, this is being covered locally :). PLUS, it's cold today.

No fear about local coverage -- this is right in local TV's proverbial wheelhouse.

I like the overhead shots, too.

It looks like she's parked until 1pm PT. Reporters saying this may be a good, temporary, viewing station to see Endeavour.

She parked up till 1pm. One of the commentators was talking about some tow trucks parked up locally to tow cars away that are double parked. There going to need a bigger tow truck.

NASA: Shuttle Endeavour Crossing

Quote
The space shuttle Endeavour is seen atop the Over Land Transporter (OLT) after exiting the Los Angeles International Airport on its way to its new home at the California Science Center in Los Angeles, Friday, Oct. 12, 2012.

Endeavour, built as a replacement for space shuttle Challenger, completed 25 missions, spent 299 days in orbit, and orbited Earth 4,671 times while traveling 122,883,151 miles. Beginning Oct. 30, the shuttle will be on display in the CSC’s Samuel Oschin Space Shuttle Endeavour Display Pavilion, embarking on its new mission to commemorate past achievements in space and educate and inspire future generations of explorers.
