People from communities all over California watched the skies in hopes of catching a glimpse of space shuttle Endeavour as it was ferried on the NASA 747 Shuttle Carrier Aircraft to Los Angeles on Sept. 21, 2012.

On its final flight to the California Science Center, Endeavour was escorted by a combination of F/A-18s and an F-15 from NASAís Armstrong Flight Research Center in Edwards, California. Those aircraft were flown by NASA Armstrong pilots, while center photographers and videographers documented the orbiterís final journey.

Included on the space shuttleís flight path were many California landmarks such as the California State Capitol Building, Disneyland, Dodger Stadium, the Getty Center, the Golden Gate Bridge, and the Hollywood sign. Also on the route were the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, NASAís Ames Research Center, NASAís Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, and the Santa Monica Pier.
