Photo Essay: ''Last hurrah for Endeavour as space shuttle soars over California before making final resting stop in Los Angeles''

awesome pics............From Daily Mail

''Space shuttle Endeavour soared high over the Hollywood sign before retiring to a Los Angeles museum, having spent Friday crisscrossing California in a final aerial hurrah.

Hitching a ride on top of a jumbo jet, the pair departed Edwards Air Force Base, 100 miles north of Los Angeles, circling the high desert that gave birth to the shuttle fleet before heading to Northern California.

Thousands of spectators jammed rooftop buildings and streets in Sacramento, cheering as Endeavour made two loops around the state Capitol. A crowd of schoolchildren squealed in delight during the second flyover.''
