Endeavor's Final Voyage

Space shuttle Endeavor took a final victory lap over California landmarks Friday, piggybacked on top of a NASA 747 on its way to retirement at the California Science Center in Los Angeles. Endeavor is the last of the four space shuttles to be relegated to a museum, and its final flight brought crowds of thousands out to streets, rooftops, and even freeways, looking to the sky for a glimpse of history. Valerie Hamilton sends this audio postcard from the Los Angeles International Airport.
