Seriously, stick your nose to the window. The original Enterprise space shuttle prototype
is set to land at JFK at 11:30am, but not before soaring by the Statue of Liberty and "other New York City landmarks," according to MSNBC
. It's all part of the procession that will bring the NASA space shuttle to the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum located at Pier 86 in Manhattan, and not before the shuttle is put on display for the month of June on a barge on the Hudson River. Today's flight will also be accompanied by a NASA C-9 Pathfinder plane and two training jets to capture images of the shuttle piggybacking on top of a Boeing 747. It's really kind of cute, in an R2D2 kind of way.
If you're not near a window (dang, that's terrible), check out live coverage of the Enterprise arriving in the city on CNN here.
