Shuttle and 747 Overflight Rescheduled For Tomorrow

The overflight of New York City by the space shuttle Enterprise mounted on its 747 carrier, originally scheduled for this past Monday but postponed by weather, has been re-scheduled for tomorrow (Friday, April 27) between 9:30 and 11:30 a.m., again weather permitting.

They will fly at low altitudes around the Statue of Liberty and the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum, accompanied by two T-38 aircraft serving as photo support, and should be easily seen from the Promenade or Brooklyn Bridge Park on the southern part of their route. After completing their overflight, they will proceed to land at John F. Kennedy Airport, which may involve a low altitude overflight of parts of Brooklyn. The exact timing and route of the flight is subject to operational and weather constraints, so no more precise information on timing is available now.
