Come on by and say hello.

On the morning of Sept. 20, 2012, the Space Shuttle Endeavour will salute the people of NASA Ames and Northern California with a low-level flyover of NASA Ames Research Center before being permanently installed at the California Science Center in Los Angeles. The approximate time for the flyover is between 9:00 to 9:30 a.m.

To commemorate this event and celebrate NASA Ames' contributions to the Space Shuttle Program, the Center will hold a public event at the Moffett Field airfield and open areas surrounding building 158, starting at 6:00 a.m. The program will include a welcome by Ames Center Director S. Pete Worden, informational booths and presentations highlighting Ames' contributions to the Space Shuttle program. The event will culminate with the flyover of the space shuttle.

All Ames employees are invited to the public event and are advised to expect increased traffic. For employees, alternate viewing areas include Zook Road and the open areas adjacent to buildings N244 and N245. The public is expected to vacate Moffett Field one hour after the shuttle departs.

Thanks for that. I've passed it on to a bunch of company personnel that is directly under the flight path to moffett, about a mile away.

Sounds like a great event! The shuttle is definitely worth seeing. I was lucky enough to be in Cocoa Beach the morning that Discovery left the Kennedy Space Center on her way to the Air and Space Museum near DC. By the time I made it to Orlando airport for my flight back to the DC area, the DC flyover was being broadcast on the news.

Was thinking the same thing, a title? They'll have to make sure they get the red key and that it is properly signed off. FWIW, in Michigan, if it goes to a relative you don't have to pay sales tax.

I still think the Enterprise should have gone to the EAA in Oshkosh. It was the experimental one.
