Default shuttle fly-over

The shuttle endeavor did a fly-over of my work today on it's way to its final resting place in downtown Los Angeles. We knew it was coming but not the flight pattern, so I probably did not pick the ideal place to wait, plus it was a hazy day. But still cool!

#2 Oh no, straight at us?




#3 Too close!!




#4 There she goes!

That one made me duck!

Nice captures Saly; I really love all of them. The one with the 747 and the 2 escorts all banking into a turn is a great catch!

Thank you Simon, Carol, Robert, Raghu, killerwolf! This was a great once in a lifetime treat for everyone here too. The shuttle made fly-bys of several Los Angeles landmarks and it created quite a traffic nightmare!
