Shuttle’s final journey delayed by bad weather
Published: September 17,2012
HANCOCK COUNTY — The beginning of space shuttle Endeavour’s final flight to California has been postponed because of weather along the flight route.
NASA had planned for the 747 carrying the shuttle to take off from Kennedy Space Center today. The flight is now scheduled to take off at sunrise tomorrow.
Low flyovers are still planned along Cape Canaveral and at NASA facilities in Louisiana and Mississippi. A stop in Houston will be shortened to one day.
Endeavour is expected to arrive in Los Angeles Thursday for its eventual installation at the California Science Center. Endeavour is the second of NASA’s three retired shuttles to head to a museum. Discovery landed at the Smithsonian Institution’s display hangar in Virginia last spring. Atlantis will remain at Kennedy.
